We particularly encourage panels that open new lines of communication between established thematic specialties as well as individual papers that cut across traditional categories of historical inquiry in imaginative and innovative ways. Postgraduate contributions are especially welcome. Subsidies for UK-based postgraduate participants will be offered on a first come first served basis.

Please send a brief CV and a summary of the proposed paper or panel (no more than three speakers per panel and 300 words per paper, please) by Friday 24 February to the Conference Secretaries at Please note that all programme participants will be expected to register as BrANCH members.
