2020/21 Postgraduate Panel Call for Papers
Are you a postgraduate historian trying out some digital methods, tools or resources as a means of exploring historical phenomena? Is your historical research made possible by the use of electronic tools and resources? Do you have a work-in-progress project? Are you seeking a friendly, critical environment in which to share your preliminary findings, successes, and failures?
The Institute of Historical Research Digital History Seminar brings together a range of historians to discuss and debate cutting edge historical research that incorporates digital resources and methods. We aim not to drive the agenda, but for the agenda to be driven by current discussion and debate.
Last year we ran our first Postgraduate Panel, and it was such a success that we’d like to do so again for our 2020/21 programme. Whilst we are a London based seminar, we have plans to run the 2020/21 programme as a combination of virtual meetings in the Autumn and (all being well) live-streamed face-to-face meetings in the Spring. We have, therefore, greater flexibility to accommodate UK-based postgraduate speakers from outside of the London area, and international speakers from compatible timezones (we meet in the late-afternoon UK time, and can adjust our timings if needed).
So if you are a historian interested in giving a paper on our postgraduate panel, please email a title and a description (circa two to three sentences in length) for your proposed paper to James Baker no later than 3 July 2020. We hope to accommodate up to 5 papers, and make our decision by mid-July.
