Annual and other conferences and seminars, 2004-19

  • Annual conferences
    The first HEIRNET conference in 2004 in Ambleside led to increasingly supported and successful conferences, which were characterized by friendliness and informality, irrespective of academic status.
  • HEIRNET annual conferences take place in varied locations, significantly usually where history is a hotly contested subject, including Greece, South Africa, the USA, Brazil, Greece, Northern Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Russia, Cyprus and Slovenia as well as England.
  • In September 2019 we are meeting in Vienna, Austria, home of our patron saint, Karl Popper.
    See HEIRNET 2019 Conference section of the website
  • HEIRNET Conferences continue a tradition of friendliness and acceptance, with all delegates being on an equal footing and treated equally.
  • For conference publications, see the next sub-section – Publications
  • Other conferences and seminars
    HEIRNET is happy to support other conferences and seminars that colleagues wish to host.
