IHR Women's History Seminar - PhD 'lightning talks'
Date / time
31/07/2024, All day

The Women’s History Seminar at the Institute of Historical Research (IHR) is organising a panel of ‘lightning talks’ (max 5 minutes) by PhD students who work on women’s or gender history to be held in the 2024/5 academic year. This is a great opportunity to disseminate your research to an engaged audience of PhD students and academics. This will be an in-person event only. Afterwards, those present are welcome to join seminar convenors for post-seminar drinks and sociability.

The Women’s History Seminar, running since 1986, is a friendly, collaborative forum of scholars at all levels, open to all, which discusses a wide range of research on women's and gender history. The fortnightly seminar series is on Friday nights in term time at 5.30pm at the IHR. Our webpage in a few months’ time will alert you to the 2024/5 seminar line-up. Or you can join our circulation email list by contacting Dr Kelly Boyd.
