Creative Histories

What does it mean for history to be creative? This two-day conference explores the ways that educators, researchers, writers, artists, students, practitioners, and curators have brought the past to life, made history compelling, and had fun.

 

About us

The Bristol Institute for Research in the Humanities and Arts (BIRTHA) facilitates research and intellectual exchange across the Faculty of Arts by providing funding opportunities for academics and postgraduates.

My BIRTHA internship has been a very valuable experience. I’ve had the privilege of working in a team that extends its collaborative work ethos to the events that it supports across the Faculty of Arts.
