Call for Postgraduate Papers in Digital History 2022-23

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.

We have run Postgraduate Panels in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. Whilst we are a London based seminar, we have plans to run the 2022/23 programme as a combination of virtual meetings and, if possible, face-to-face meetings which will be live-streamed. 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, a brief bio, and a description for your proposed paper of no more than 150 words to Jack Newman no later than 9 September 2022. We hope to accommodate up to 6 papers, and make our decision by the end of September.
