Dear all,

Happy New Year! We're excited to say that the World History Workshop is now inviting submissions for papers to be delivered in Lent Term (January - March) 2021.

As in previous years, the workshop welcomes contributions that give attention to global historical perspectives. We welcome, amongst others, presentations that focus on economic histories, histories of science, migration, race, gender, empire, colonial and post-colonial studies, and comparative history. We encourage presenters to consider their research within the broad framework offered by world history to allow for a productive discussion across various academic sub-fields.

We invite submissions from individual graduate students and early-career researchers at all stages of their research (including work-in-progress), and also from prospective panels from Cambridge and beyond. Individual papers should be 20-30 minutes in length, and will be followed by 45 minutes of discussion. Panels should consist of three papers, each 20 minutes in length, and will be followed by 30 minutes of discussion.

The workshop will be run over Zoom on Thursdays from 2-4 pm GMT. As ever, we are committed to providing a forum for diverse contributions and helpful feedback in an inclusive environment.

Please submit your abstract (200-300 words), a short bio, and a note on your availability to the World History Workshops Convenors ( by Monday, 17th of January, 2021.

We hope to announce decisions on all submissions by the 19th of January. Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!

Warm wishes,

World History Workshop Convenors
