Call for Papers Oxford Graduate Seminar in Economic and Social History 2020-202120-07-2020 12:33
The University of Oxford programme for Economic and Social History and Nuffield College, Oxford, are inviting applications for the 2020-2021 round of the Graduate Seminar in Economic and Social History.
The seminar series provides a forum for graduate students to receive helpful advice and feedback on their research projects in progress. We welcome qualitative and quantitative works alike on any aspect of economic and social history and encourage students from all disciplines related to economic and social history to apply. We particularly encourage submissions from students of traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.
The Graduate Seminar in Economic and Social History is well attended by faculty and graduate students from History, Economic History, and related disciplines. The seminar takes place during term time (see dates below). We are committed to hosting diverse contributions in an inclusive environment. Each session consists of a 30 minute presentation by the guest speaker followed by 30 minutes of discussion and questions from the audience.
The seminar will take place online for the duration of Michaelmas term (October 11 - December 5, 2020). Depending on the development of the Covid-19 pandemic, the seminar might return to an in-person seminar at Nuffield College, Oxford in 2021. Details about this will follow in-time.
Successful applicants will hear back from us by mid-September.
