CoMo Event: IHR@Sheffield

IHR@Sheffield

Centre of Contemporary and Modern History, The University of Sheffield

The Institute of Historical Research is getting out of London, and on the road!

In the first of a series of IHR@ events around the UK, the IHR and the Centre for Contemporary and Modern History (CoMo) at the University of Sheffield are hosting a special two-part event.

Part 1 – Afternoon Workshop for Early Career Researchers and PhD Students
Booking required

We invite PhD candidates and early career historians from across the midlands and north of England to a career development workshop, networking event and roundtable discussion in Sheffield. IHR staff will be in attendance throughout the day to discuss fellowships and other opportunities available through the IHR. Senior, mid-career and emerging historians from Sheffield’s History department and School of East Asian Studies will also be in attendance.

Thanks to generous support from the IHR and the White Rose College of the Humanities (WROCAH) travel reimbursement (domestic economy class train fares) will be provided to successful applicants. We’ll also make sure you’re fed and caffeinated, and finish off the day with a glass of wine or two.

Schedule of events:

12pm – Arrival and registration
12:15pm – Lunch (provided) and informal networking
1:00pm – Research speed-dating
1:45pm – IHR presentation on opportunities for PhD/ECRs
2:15pm – Coffee break
2:30pm – Developing research collaborations, co-authoring and co-production
4pm – Break before evening session

Part 2 – Public Round-Table Discussion on Establishing Peace, with Dr Miriam Dobson (University of Sheffield), Professors Martin Conway (University of Oxford), Peiter Lagrou (Université Libre de Bruxelles) and Dr Jeremy Taylor (University of Nottingham).
4.30pm start with wine reception to follow at 6pm
All welcome

 The research roundtable, which is open to the public, will discuss how peace is constructed after conflict and within divided communities across the globe. The theme reflects a IHR current events theme and postdoctoral work at Sheffield funded by the Max Batley Peace Studies legacy across the faculties of Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences.  The panel will bring together historians of Europe and Asia from across the UK and Europe, facilitating a broad discussion that will encourage comparison.
