Maritime lunchtime lecture series

Josephine Butler resing a book

Liverpool: the city of the shadows

Our free public lectures follow on from the One Magnificent City events of the summer to examine the darker side of Liverpool. We focus on the lesser-known history of Liverpool to reveal individuals on the margins or in trouble, to make visible voices that usually remain silent, and to study the places and people that make up the city of the shadows.

Lectures are free and all are welcome.

Tuesdays 1-2pm in September at Merseyside Maritime Museum, Albert Dock

Organised by History Continuing Education at the University of Liverpool in partnership with Merseyside Maritime Museum. To find out more visit www.liverpool.ac.uk/conted or telephone 0151 794 6900.
