This conference is the first event organised by the East Midlands History Network, a network of postgraduate students studying history at the nine East Midlands universities. The EMHN's key aim is to create stronger links between history PG students across the region, providing students with an increased network of peer support.
The Conference theme is 'Identity and the Other'; the day will consist of three panels focusing on 'Local and National Identity', 'Race and Identity' and 'Gender and Identity'. We will be hearing papers from PG students from the University of Lincoln, the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University, the University of Leicester, De Montfort University and the University of Loughborough, covering a broad range of topics and time periods. The event will also include a roundtable on publishing academic journal articles.
The purpose of the event is to provide a safe space in which PG students can practice delivering conference papers, moderating conference panels, as well as providing a chance to receive feedback in a relaxed and informal setting. It will also provide attendees with the opportunity to meet other PG history students from within the region and to strengthen networks.
Lunch will be provided free of charge and facilities are available on campus.
The event will be followed by drinks at The Swan.
Note: The conference is student led and we encourage other PG students to organize subsequent East Midlands History Network events at their own institutions.
