Dear all,

The Cambridge World History Workshop is now inviting submissions to deliver papers during Michaelmas Term 2020 (October – December).

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 in Michaelmas Term will be run over Zoom on Thursdays 2-4pm. 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 (worldhistoryworkshop@gmail.com) by Tuesday 29th of September, 2020.

We hope to announce decisions on all submissions by the 5th of October. Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!

Warm wishes,
World History Workshop Convenors
