IHR Wolfson Room NB01 (Basement)
Call for Papers, deadline – 31 January 2024
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 London on Wednesday 20th March 2024 between 17:00 and 19:30 (London time).
We will select the ten best abstracts to take part in this fun event. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your presentational skills, to meet fellow postgrads, and to disseminate your research to an engaged community of eighteenth-century specialists. Our evening will conclude with a drinks reception at the Institute of Historical Research and an informal supper at a local restaurant, where all speakers are invited as our guests.
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 2024.
This will be a hybrid event, but we would prefer all speakers to attend in person if they are based in the UK and are able to do so. Applications are welcome from international students whose research is in the relevant area (British History c. 1660-1830).
