The Digital History Seminar has been running since 2012 and focuses on the discussion of historical research that has been made possible by the use of electronic tools and resources. The seminar is hosted by the Institute of Historical Research and is offered in association with IHR Digital.

Our 2019-20 seminar programme has now been announced.

Seminars are usually at Senate House, London on Tuesday afternoons, with a simultaneous live broadcast online. We welcome anyone with an interest in digital history, including academics, students, cultural heritage and digital humanities practitioners, and other researchers. There’s no need to register, you can just turn up to the room in Senate House. We sometimes have drinks or dinner with speakers afterwards, and all are welcome to join us. Past seminars on our YouTube channel can be viewed online and are a valuable resource for the study of digital history.

The conveners are: Mia Ridge (British Library), Justin Colson (Essex), Matthew Shaw (IHR), Melodee Beals (Loughborough), James Baker (Sussex), Tessa Hauswedell (UCL), Richard Deswarte (UEA), and Jack Newman (IHR).

Convener alumni: Seth Denbo (American Historical Association), Adam Crymble (Hertfordshire), Matthew Phillpott (IHR), Jane Winters (IHR), Peter Webster (Independent), Beth Hartland (KCL), Charlotte Tupman (KCL), and Tim Hitchcock (Sussex).
