Legal and Social History Workshop

The Legal and Social History Graduate Workshop aims to provide a welcoming environment for MPhil students, PhD students, and early-career researchers to come together in common interest in the intersection between the law and society. Papers may be in any period and may have any geographical focus. 


We promote interdisciplinary analysis of the law as it functioned in the past and as it informed and facilitated developments in intellectual history, cultural history, social history, economic history, etc. The workshop is designed to support research across disciplines that have at times been quite narrow in scope and have not communicated with one another. As such, students in Law, History, English, ASNC, Classics, and other faculties and departments are welcome to submit abstracts, so long as papers are in line with the workshop's remit.
