IHR British History in the Long Eighteenth Century Seminar Lighting Talks

Call for Papers: The British History in the Long Eighteenth Century Seminar at the Institute of Historical Research in London is seeking early-stage PhD students to deliver five-minute ‘lightning talks’ on their research. The event, part of the regular fortnightly seminar series, will be held on Wednesday 10 March 2021 and will take place online via Zoom (17:00-19:00 London time).

This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your presentational skills, to meet fellow postgrads, and to publicise your research to a large, highly engaged, and international audience of historians and history enthusiasts.

We will be selecting a small number of students to take part in this fun event. An online ‘tea’ will be held beforehand to enable postgrads to meet each other and all are invited to remain online after the event for post-seminar sociability.

If you would like to apply to take part please submit your name, university affiliation, year of study (whether part-time or full-time), name of supervisor, working thesis title or area of research, with a brief abstract of your topic, your sources, your approach, and your intended contribution to British History (400 words max) by 31 January 2021.

Applications are open to all PhD students whose research is in the relevant area (i.e. British history c. 1660-1830). Students from outside the UK are welcome to apply.
