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!
Running parallel to these seminars will be a series of postgraduate research seminars, which provide an opportunity for postgraduate students to present shorter papers on their research (convened by Milica Prokic and Jon Chappell) with an academic colleague playing the role of commentator. We’ll also have two panels during the year where a mixture of academic colleagues and postgraduate students will bring their perspectives on a broader question.
All seminars will be on Tuesdays at 3:15 in Lecture Theatre 3, 17 Woodland Road, followed by drinks in the HUMs common room, 11 Woodland Road.
For more information please contact Professor Josie McLellan.
