Economic and Social History

Graduate Workshop

The Economic and Social History Workshop is a weekly forum that discusses all aspects of economic and social history covering a broad chronological and geographical remit. 

We meet fortnightly in Michaelmas term on Mondays in Room 5 of the Faculty of History from 12.30 to 1.30pm. 

Papers normally last around 30 minutes, and are followed by 20 minutes of constructive feedback and discussion. The workshop aims to provide an informal and constructive atmosphere to present either finished papers or ‘works in progress’, and a free lunch (pizzas!) is provided for attendees.

If you are interested in presenting a paper this academic year, please email the convenors with a paper title and a short abstract. Submissions are welcome from both MPhil and PhD students at any stage of their study. And if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
