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 on Mondays in Room 5 of the Faculty of History from 12.30 to 1.30pm (except 15th October, when we will meet in Room 6). Sessions are weekly in Michaelmas Term and fortnightly in Lent Term.

Papers normally last around 30 minutes, and are followed by 20 minutes of constructive feedback and discussion. The workshop aims to provide a casual and constructive atmosphere to present either finished papers or ‘works in progress’, and a free sandwich lunch 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.
