Modern European History workshop

The Modern European History (MEH) Workshop is a friendly space where graduate students can present their research and share ideas and thoughts with their peers. Our definition of ‘Modern European’ is broad in time and space and we welcome papers on themes including but not limited to the political, cultural, economic, intellectual, social and military history of Europe from the mid-1800s to the present. We are also keen to see paper proposals on methodological topics and on comparative or transnational histories.

During Michaelmas term, the workshop will be meeting on alternate Thursdays at 10 AM. Some meetings will take place in person in the Stephen Hawking Room at Trinity Hall, while others will be hosted online via Zoom. All sessions will follow a similar format: a 20-30 minute presentation followed by questions and discussion. We will publish information on how to join the meetings in the week before the workshop via our mailing list.

We welcome presentations on work in progress and completed projects; we would particularly encourage MPhil and first-year PhD students to consider presenting their work, as the workshop is an excellent place to receive early feedback and meet fellow MEH students. If you are interested in giving a paper, please get in touch with the conveners. Calls for papers are always sent out in-between terms.
