We are pleased to invite proposals for the Lent Term session of this year’s LSE International History Research Seminar (HY509).
The seminar welcomes presentations on any aspect of - or approach to – international, global, transnational, and world history, with a focus on the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. The seminar is an ideal environment to present research at an early stage and meet other graduate students and LSE faculty members.
Seminars will be held on Wednesday afternoons between January and March (LSE term time).
The International History Research Seminar is open both to LSE and non- LSE presenters. These include PhD students, postdoctoral researchers as well as visiting and teaching fellows.
Each session will feature two speakers presenting on related topics. Presenters are expected to submit a long abstract (around 1,000 words) ten days before their presentation. The abstract will be circulated among the seminar’s participants beforehand. Presentations are typically 30 minutes for each speaker, followed by Q&A.
Those interested in presenting are invited to submit a provisional title, an abstract (300 words maximum), and a CV (no more than two pages) to email@example.com by 6PM Tuesday 24 October 2017.
We will aim to ensure a balance of doctoral, post-doctoral, and other presenters from LSE and elsewhere. LSE applicants are invited to encourage non-LSE PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, visiting and teaching fellows whom they would like to present with to apply.
Special consideration will be given to abstracts that fit well together and joint applications.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Alex Mayhew, Eline van Ommen, Judith Jacob, Grace Carrington, and Will King
