We are delighted to launch the inaugural UKC History Con 2023, a one-day Postgraduate-led conference held on Friday 9th June within the School of History at the University of Kent, Canterbury campus. This year’s theme is ‘History in Crisis: Why it Matters’.

Our call for papers is now live! We will be accepting abstracts until 5th May 2023. The form can be found on our website: https://ukchistorycon.wordpress.com/

In a turbulent time for the humanities, this conference aims to connect researchers, and cultivate discussion on the cruciality and beauty of historical research. We encourage applications from students and researchers of history, as well as disciplines beyond history, recognising the importance of interdisciplinary work within the humanities. Key themes might include: Informing Policy, Politics, and Activism; Preserving and Challenging Culture, Heritage, and Forgotten Histories; Understanding Present and Past Crises; and The Personal Relevance of History.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email our current conference committee at ukchistorycon@gmail.com, and check us out on Twitter @HistoryConUKC for more information!
