History research seminars
For the departmental seminar series this year we have a mix of our own colleagues - using a variety of methods from the more traditional paper, through a round table format, to ‘dead author’ where we discuss a pre-circulated piece of work in progress - alongside colleagues from elsewhere. Papers will range from the medieval through the modern and cover a very broad range of historical approaches and topics!
In addition to these seminars, we offer a number of workhops for postgraduates related to training and careers, as well as opportunities for research students to present papers. These are co-ordinated by Sumita Mukherjee, with our current PGR reps Vivian Kong and Chris Wemyss.
All seminars will be on Tuesdays at 3:30 in Lecture Room 8, 21 Woodland Road, followed by drinks in the HUMs common room, 11 Woodland Road.
