Postgraduate and Early Career Workshop 2017

UCL Institute of the Americas, 30th March 2017

 We are pleased to invite papers for the BrANCH postgraduate and early career workshop, to be held at University College London on 30th March 2017. The Workshop provides a forum for the constructive consideration and discussion of thesis chapters, potential journal submissions, and conference papers. Submissions are encouraged for individual papers from postgraduate and early career academics working on all aspects of US history in the long nineteenth century.

The Workshop is a valuable medium for young scholars to bring exciting new research to the table and develop it further through in-depth discussion with their peers. It also provides an opportunity for those of us at the early stages of our academic careers to meet up outside the annual BrANCH conference. Limited funding is available to subsidise the travel of those presenting their work.

We will circulate papers ahead of the Workshop to all participants. On the day, each presenter will give a 5 minute introduction about their work, to be followed by group discussion of their paper.

In order to give all submissions due consideration, brief proposals of no more than 300 words should be submitted by 17th February 2017. Submissions should be emailed to branch.pg.workshop@gmail.com.

If you would like to attend but do not wish to submit a paper, please let us know via email so that we can circulate the papers to you ahead of the workshop.

Kind regards,

James Williamson and Alys Beverton
