History Brown Bag Seminar Series

The History Brown Bag Seminar Series brings together a lively variety of history papers on any region of the world and on periods from the Early Modern era to present, with a diversity of methodologies including historians from outside the History discipline (eg, Economics, Law and Medicine).

The program includes postgraduate completion seminars, research presentations by visiting scholars, academics returning from a research trip or writing retreat, and new members of staff.

It runs in both semesters on Thursdays from 1 to 2pm, and is one of the main academic events for SHAPS History staff, postgraduates, fellows and associates to gather. External participants and attendees are also welcome.

Presentations generally last 40 minutes long, with 20 minutes for questions and answers.

A Call for Papers is sent out at least once per year, but expressions of interest can be sent at any time to the convenor of the series, Dr Sarah Walsh, Hansen Lecturer in Global History.
