Unofficial Histories is a public conference to discuss how society produces, presents, and consumes history beyond official and elite versions of the past.

It aims to open up to examination the ways in which historians, curators, writers, journalists, artists, archivists, geographers, film makers, musicians, playwrights, activists and others, produce and present the past in the public realm, popular culture and in everyday life.

After a successful first conference in May 2012 in London, the second Unofficial Histories conference was held in June 2013 in Manchester.

Unofficial Histories 2014 will be held in Huddersfield on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th June 2014. The draft programme is now online and registration is now open!
