‘Truth and Interpretation’ AHI Conference 2019

Whose truth and whose interpretation do we chose to tell about our heritage in the age of ‘fake news’ and propaganda?

With a site visit to Bletchley Park the conference explores the theme through papers from academics and practitioners in interpretive practice.

Bletchley Park is a place of exceptional historical importance and remains highly relevant to our lives today and for the future. It is the home of British codebreaking and a birthplace of modern information technology. We are being welcomed to the site on Thursday 10th where volunteer guides will escort us around the iconic Codebreaking huts, Victorian Mansion and grounds, and we will experience new displays and exhibitions in a full day visit.

 

The 2019 AHI Conference will be based at The Accor Bedford Centre Hotel, situated on the banks of the Great River Ouse in the town. Close to the M1 and just a mile away from the A6, this hotel is easy to access no matter where you're coming from. Bedford Railway Station is also just a stone's throw from the hotel.

The conference opens just after lunchtime on Wednesday 9th October and runs until lunchtime on Friday 11th October with a full programme of speakers. Time to meet & chat to likeminded colleagues in the ‘business’ from all areas of expertise and interest.

Thursday evening sees the AHI Awards Dinner 2019, with Loyd Grossman as our guest presenting the Awards.

Look out for Early Bird tickets which come with a discount.
