2019-2020 PG Conference

The Warwick Postgraduate History Podcast 2020

Due to the unforeseen global pandemic, the Warwick 2020 History Department Postgraduate Conference, due to be held Thursday 28th and Friday 29th May, was unable to go ahead as planned.

However, the organising committee recognised that it is important to continue sharing our work, our projects and our discussions at this time. Fortunately, we live in a digital age; communicating and sharing ideas remotely has never been easier.

So, instead of the conference, we have recorded and published a series of podcasts showcasing postgraduate history projects and work. We had some wonderful applications and are excited to share the podcast series with you. Episodes are linked below, and can also be found via Soundcloud, Spotify, and Itunes.

We want to thank all the participants for sharing their research and we hope that listeners will enjoy hearing about these exciting projects as much as we have.
