Postgraduate Conference

In Term 3, the department runs a two-day conference for Warwick History postgraduate students to make presentations on their own research. The conference is run by students and open to both PGT and PGR. Students can present a preliminary research outline, or more developed work.

The audience for the Conference is made up of fellow graduate students, staff in the Department and other academics and Warwick students who may be interested. The purpose is to provide you with an opportunity to develop your presentational skills in a professional environment, and to enable you to receive informed feedback on your work from other historians.

All research and taught MA students are expected to attend the conference.

PGT Poster Competition

Details TBC - to take place in Term 3.

All PGT students are invited to create a poster outlining their research and submit this for a course-wide competition. The aim is to help students to consolidate their ideas and develop presentation skills and to celebrate the achievements of PGT students at the end of the year. The posters will be put on display for staff and students to view so that students can also receive feedback on their work.
