Call for Papers: PhD Thesis Workshop

Online | Zoom
5–6th May 2022
Deadline: 21st Feb 2022

The Economic History Society is pleased to invite submissions to its PhD Thesis Workshop, to be held for the second year via Zoom in May 2022. Participants will share thesis papers or chapters-in-progress with fellow doctoral colleagues in economic and social history, and give and receive feedback on each other’s work. The workshop aims to provide opportunities for PhD students to develop their research and peer reviewing skills, as well as the chance to build horizontal networks with fellow early career scholars. Last year’s inaugural workshop was received positively and participants welcomed the opportunity to receive detailed feedback on their research and also network with fellow doctoral students.

Participants will be expected to read and prepare feedback on all of their colleagues’ papers, and each paper will also have one doctoral student discussant to lead the conversation. Preference will be given to applicants in the second or later year of their research. The Workshop will be held on Zoom during the afternoon (UK time) to enable participation from researchers in a wide variety of time zones.

We welcome submissions from all doctoral researchers in economic and/or social history, and we especially encourage applications from graduate students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the academy. Applicants should email a short abstract (250–300 words) in a PDF file to by 21st February 2022. Accepted presenters will be notified by 28th February and will be asked to upload a paper of no more than 5000 words for circulation to fellow speakers by 4th April.
