Cornerstone Heritage events
Following the success of last year's Cornerstone Heritage events which aimed to bring together researchers from across the university with a shared interest in heritage and to showcase our work to the heritage community outside the university with events such as the Festival of Research, postgraduate conference at Saltram House and network lunches. This year Cornerstone is focusing on bringing the outside world to us, hosting network events and providing opportunities for researchers to meet the people who run heritage organisations and hopefully sow the seeds of future partnerships:

As part of Plymouth History Week in May, Cornerstone Heritage is pleased to announce we will be host to 'Local Studies Day' on Saturday 4 May, organised by the Plymouth Octopus Project network of local heritage groups. If you would like to attend please contact Alan Butler.

Cornerstone Heritage is delighted to be hosting this year's conference of the South West Museums Federation, 4 and 5 July. This network event will bring together over fifty curators and heritage professionals from museums and historic sites across the south west. Staff and students are welcome to attend, free of charge, please contact Daniel Maudlin to reserve a place.

Flows of Entanglement: River and Identity 5 September 2019, a full day interactive, informal and multi-perspective discussion that explores the meanings and representations of rivers, documenting how we live on, by, or with rivers. This panel invites scholars from a diverse range of disciplines to consider the entangled and fluid ways in which rivers shape identities. Call for abstracts deadline 29 April 2019.  Find out more.

Cornerstone will also be hosting a Museums Association network and learning event in September, more to follow.
