There is no past we can bring back by longing for it. There is only an eternal now that builds and creates out of the past something new and better - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

The Cultural Histories, Creative Futures conference will bring together scholars from the UK and China to engage with the past, present and future of scholarship in culture, history, and creativity.
