Dear all,
The Cambridge World History Workshop is now inviting submissions to deliver papers during Lent Term 2022 (January - March 2022). The Lent Term workshops will take place on Thursdays from 2:00-4:00pm on Zoom, unless stated otherwise on our term card. We encourage submissions from speakers both within and beyond Cambridge.
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. As always, we are committed to providing a forum for diverse contributions and helpful feedback in an inclusive environment.
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.
Please submit your abstract (200-300 words), a short bio, and a note on your availability to the World History Workshops Convenors ( by Thursday 13th January, 2022. Please see further details on our website (
We hope to announce decisions on all submissions by the 20th of January. Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
Warm wishes,
World History Workshop Convenors
