This conference is for PhD students studying German History at a UK/Irish university from the middle ages through to contemporary. It is especially suitable for 2nd year PhD Students to assist using research facilities and obtaining grants.
The German Historical Institute London will hold its 18th postgraduate students' conference on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 January 2014. Its intention is to give postgraduate research students from the UK and Ireland working on German history an opportunity to present their work-in-progress and to discuss this with other students working in the same field. The Institute also aims to present itself as a research centre for German history in London and to introduce postgraduates to the facilities it offers as well as to the Institute's Research Fellows.
Please note that all 2nd and 3rd year students are encouraged to present a paper on their PhD project.
On the morning of Thursday 9 January 2014 a Paleography course on German handwriting is planned. Should you wish to take part in this course, please register your interest.
