The seminar welcomes presentations on any aspect of - or approach to - international, global and world history, broadly defined, with a focus on the eigtheenth, nineteenth and twentieth centures. The seminar is an ideal environment to present research at an early stage to LSE faculty members and other graduate students.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty of developments concerning COVID-19, seminars will be held online via Zoom on Wednesday afternoons between September and December 2021.

The International History Research Seminar is open to both LSE and non-LSE presenters. These inluded PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, as well as visiting and teaching fellows.

Each session will feature two speakers presenting on relating topics. Presentations are typically 20 minutes for each speaker and will be followed by a Q&A session. Presenters are expected to submit a long abstract of around 1,000 words ten days before their presentation.

Those interested in presenting are invited to submit a provisional title, an abstract (300 words max.) and a CV (no more than two pages) to internationalhistory509@gmail.com.

Special consideration will be given to joint applicants.
