Legal and Social History Workshop

Who are we?

The Legal and Social History Graduate Workshop enables graduate students and early career researchers with a common interest in the intersection of law and society to come together and share their ideas. We promote interdisciplinary analysis of the law as it functioned in the past and as it informed and facilitated developments in (for example) intellectual history, cultural history, social history, and economic history. Workshops are held fornightly on Tuesdays at 17:00 during term time.

The workshop is designed to support research across disciplines that have at times been quite narrow in scope and not communicated with each other. As such, we welcome submissions from students in Law, History, English, ASNC, Classics, and other facultiues and departments, so long as these are in line with the Workshop's remit. Papers may be in any period and have any geographical focus.

Our Easter 2022 term card is now out and can be viewed at the bottom of this page.


Information and links for forthcoming talks are circulated via our mailing list. To subscribe, click here or email one of the convenors.
