IHR postgrad seminars and History Lab

Ed has asked me to give the IHR Postgraduate Seminars (in London) and History Lab a bit of a plug. Ed is hoping to use the History Lab blog in association with the Seminars this year, to post reports and hold discussions of each paper. This sounds like a Good Thing to me.

I hadn’t really heard of the History Lab before, but it’s intended as a ‘network for postgraduate students and new researchers in history and related disciplines’, with membership free to any postgraduate student enrolled on an MA, MRes, MPhil or PhD.

The autumn programme for the seminars is below.

16 October Brian Casey (National University of Ireland, Maynooth)
Matt Harris: a forgotten Irish revolutionary

30 October Rob Dale (QMUL)
‘Rats’: Bureaucracy and corruption in post-war Leningrad through the eyes of demobilised soldiers (1944-1950)

13 November Oren Margolis (Jesus College, Oxford)
King René, Janus Pannonius, and the politics of cultural transmission in Renaissance Italy

27 November Iain Sharpe (IHR)
An Edwardian party funding scandal? Cecil Rhodes and the Liberal party

11 December Rosie Macarthur (Northampton)
Unnecessary wants? Luxury goods and the Hanbury family of Kelmarsh, 1720-1845

All seminars start at 5.30pm and take place in the Low Countries Room of the IHR (Senate House), 3rd Floor. (They finish, naturally, in a nearby pub at some subsequent point in time.)

    Thanks Sharon: my own personal experience of the History Lab and the IHR’s postgraduate community in general has been very positive: extremely proactive, sociable and full of advice for both historical and career related advice.

    In the meantime, on 20 October we’re holding a welcome party/’open evening’ at the IHR at 17:30, so any postgrads who are in London should come along and meet us and others!
