Port Towns & Urban Cultures

Project Details


PTUC’s core objective is to explore the liminal societies at the intersection between maritime and urban cultures. PTUC has forged a strong European network of academics and in this next phase aims to further establish its reputation beyond Europe. The key activities within the next year such as applying for an AHRC networking grant and continuing to develop an academic journal, an annual conference together with a greater spread of members researching, publishing and applying for grants are designed to take the research group to the next level. To this end, the bulk of resources will be directed to employing a 0.5 RA to conduct research and assist with the coordination of the significant range of activities planned for 2016-17.
