This conference aims to encourage discussions around 'bridging the gap', both in terms of knowledge and also bridging the gap between societies, methodologies and view points. We invite proposals for twenty-minute papers from all postgraduate historians, classicists, ancient historians, archaeologists, and interdisciplinary researchers working on any location or time period. The papers will be presented in a roundtable format.
We are particularly keen to invite papers which consider Britain's relationship with Europe and the wider world. Other suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
• Movement of People • Objects and Methodologies • Culture and Society • Trade and Economy • Travel Accounts • Audiences and Receptions
We also invite poster submissions from postgraduate students. In order to offer the opportunity to present work in the earlier stages of research, poster submissions are not necessarily required to fit with the theme of the conference.
Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by 20th March 2020. If you have any ideas, questions or enquiries, please feel free to get in touch.
Tea/coffee and lunch will be provided, and the conference will be followed by a reception where there will be prizes for the best paper and poster. Afterwards, there will be an optional dinner.
