The British Society of Sport History invites submissions for a pre-conference workshop in De Montfort, Leicester on Wednesday 24th August, directly preceding BSSH’s 2022 annual conference. Open to PhD students and early career researchers who have submitted a paper to the main conference and who are interested in meeting with peers, presenting their work, and receiving peer review, the Workshop serves as a dedicated research forum. We hope, in particular, to present the work of a number of scholars who are new to the BSSH annual meeting.

In order to ensure useful peer review process, the workshop is limited to ten spaces. In addition to the submission of a full conference abstract, interested applicants must send a 2,000-word paper (a section from a chapter, proposed article etc.), or general overview of their research project, to Katie Taylor at by 17.00 (UK time) on Monday 16th May 2022. PhD and ECR applicants are reminded that registration fees are not charged for them to present at the BSSH. Katie will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this event.

At the workshop, participants will present a ten-minute overview of their submitted proposal before receiving peer feedback. Each participant will be required to read five participant’s papers so that group reviews can be given. The workshop offers an excellent opportunity for PhD students and ECRs to receive feedback on their work in a mutually-supportive environment
