Work In Progress

The History PGR Work in Progress sessions are intended to provide doctoral researchers with a platform to share their work and receive feedback from peers. Each week a PhD student provides a flash paper or short piece of writing relevant to their current work which we discuss in the session.

All History PGRs are invited to attend and no in depth subject knowledge is required. We discuss methodological questions, research issues, and provide a platform for PGRs to interact.

Join us in the History PGR Common Room on Teams every Monday during term time, from 5pm to 6.30pm.
