The History Lab Seminar invites papers for the 2012-13 academic year. The seminar is a great opportunity to present your ongoing work or research conclusions to fellow postgraduates and early career historians in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Papers can be on any aspect or time period of historical study. They should be either 40 to 45 minutes long or we welcome the submission of joint seminars with two papers of 20 to 25 minutes duration (even if the two topics are loosely related). All seminars are followed by a discussion session lasting around 15 minutes.
The seminars are a great way to socialise with historians who are at similar stages in their careers, and as such the seminars always finish with drinks (and there are frequent post-seminar pub visits).
If you are interested, please send an abstract of between 250 and 350 words outlining your proposed paper to the seminar convenors at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include some brief information about the stage you are at in your studies and research interests.
Seminars take place at the Institute of Historical Research (Senate House, London).
We are able to podcast the seminars on our website. Therefore, please indicate in your submission whether you are willing to have your paper recorded.
