Postgraduate Panel Call for Papers 2021-22

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.

Over the last two years we have run three Postgraduate Panels and they were such a success that we’d like to make them an annual occurrence. Whilst we are a London based seminar, we have plans to run the 2021/22 programme as a combination of virtual meetings in the Autumn and, if possible, 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). You can view the previous postgraduate panels from 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.

So if you are a historian interested in giving a paper on our postgraduate panel, please email a title, a brief bio, and a description for your proposed paper of no more than 150 words to Jack Newman no later than 16 July 2021. We hope to accommodate up to 6 papers, and make our decision by the beginning of August.
