Call for Papers Oxford Graduate Seminar in Economic and Social History

The University of Oxford programme for Economic and Social History and Nuffield College, Oxford, are inviting applications for the 2019–2020 round of the Graduate Seminar in Economic and Social History.

We welcome projects from all disciplines related to economic and social history to apply, and strongly encourage submissions from students of traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. The seminar series provides a forum for graduate students to receive helpful advice and feedback on their research projects in progress. We appreciate qualitative and quantitative works alike; those that discuss issues of intersectionality, including race, gender, and class; and we welcome submissions that study female, child, and non-white populations. 

The Graduate Seminar in Economic and Social History is well attended by faculty and graduate students from History, Economic History, and related disciplines. We are committed to hosting diverse contributions in an inclusive environment.  

Each session consists of a 30 minute presentation by the guest speaker followed by 30 minutes of discussion and questions from the audience.

The workshop meets on Wednesdays (1 PM) during term (see below), at Nuffield College, Oxford. Coffee and sandwiches are provided.

Interested graduate students can apply by sending an abstract of their project (max. 500 words, in English) and their CV to by 19 August 2019. Successful applicants will hear back from us by mid-September and invited to set a date for their visit to Oxford. 

The Oxford terms for the forthcoming academic year are:
Michaelmas: 13 October 2019 – 7 December 2019
Hilary: 19 January 2020 – 14 March 2020
Trinity: 26 April 2020 – 20 June 2020
