IHR British History in the Long Eighteenth Century Seminar: Lightning Talks 2023

Date / time: 31 January, 12:00 am

Call for Papers, deadline – 31 January 2023

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 in hybrid format on Wednesday 15th March 2023 between 17:00 and 19:30 (London time).

This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your presentational skills, to meet fellow postgrads, and to disseminate your research to an engaged international audience (some of whom will be joining us via Zoom).

We will select ten of the best abstracts from stiff competition to take part in this fun event. This year, we’d like to encourage as many of our speakers as possible to join us in person, and those present at the IHR are welcome to join the convenors for post-seminar drinks and 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, your working thesis title or area of research, and a brief summary of your topic (one paragraph or less) by 31st January 2023. Please also indicate if you can participate in person or online only.

Applications are welcome from international students whose research is in the relevant area (British History c. 1660-1830).
