Modern British History

The workshop is open to MPhil and PhD students working on any aspect of the history of the British Isles from 1700 to the present, and provides an opportunity to present finished or work-in-progress research to a friendly and supportive audience. Papers are usually 20-30 minutes long, and are followed by drinks and a chaired discussion.


All sessions will be held in the Munro Room, Queens' College, on Thursdays in term time, starting at 5pm (please check the Graduate Training calendar for more information). Refreshments will be provided. Further social events will be held on Thursday evenings, following the Modern British History Seminar. Details to be announced closer to the date.
