We welcome paper proposals that engage with one or more of these images on the theme of historical human, animal, and environmental exploitation and its legacies: https://thehistorylabplus.wordpress.com/exploited/.

We are, as ever, particularly interested in receiving proposals from early-career historians that

  • apply atypical methods and/or technologies;
  • result from collaboration between job sectors or countries;
  • are interdisciplinary;
  • have attracted new audiences.

Please send either an individual proposal or a proposal for a panel or roundtable to conference.historylabplus@gmail.com by 23:59 on 31 May 2024.

Individual proposals should contain: an abstract (250 words), a short biography (100 words), and, in order of preference, how you are able to present your research (in a 20-minute paper, 10-minute paper, 5-minute lightning talk, or a poster).

Panel or roundtable proposals should contain: a description of the panel or roundtable theme and format (250-words) and, for each speaker, an individual abstract (250 words) and a short biography (100 words).

For either proposal type, please also indicate whether and why you would like to be considered for a conference bursary to defray your travel and accommodation expenses, should funding become available.

If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at the same email address: conference.historylabplus@gmail.com.
