The Cambridge World History Workshop is now inviting submissions to deliver papers during Michaelmas Term 2018 (October – December).


The workshop welcomes contributions that give attention to global historical perspectives. We also welcome, amongst others, contributions that focus on African, Middle Eastern, Caribbean, Latin American, and Asian histories, as well as on economic histories, histories of science, race, migration, colonial and post-colonial studies, and comparative history. We encourage presenters to consider their research within the broad perspective offered by world history to enable discussions across specific academic sub-fields.


We welcome submissions from individual graduate students and early-career researchers at all stages of their research (including work-in-progress), and also from prospective panels. 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.


Applicants should provide a brief abstract of their paper (200 – 250 words) and a note on their availability.


The workshop runs on Thursdays at 14:30 – 16:30, in the Sir Arthur Quiller Couch Room of St John’s College, Cambridge. We are committed to providing a forum for diverse contributions and helpful feedback in an inclusive environment.


Please address applications to Tamara Fernando ( or the WHW Convenors ( by 1 September 2018. We will respond to applications by 20 September. Please get in touch with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
