East Midlands History Postgraduate Conference: Identity and Community in History

Nottingham Trent University’s Postgraduate History Conference team are pleased to announce this year’s conference, to be held on Thursday 12th July. This theme aims to address and facilitate the discussion of concepts of Identity and Community, broadly defined. Researchers may choose to consider what is defined as community, people’s relationships with their locale, and how identities are formed.

Possible themes may include, but are not limited to:

  1. National and local identities
  2. Physical, metaphysical and emotional communities
  3. Immigration and communities built around ‘the other’
  4. The construction of imagined communities

We would like to invite papers from postgraduate researchers not only from History and Heritage, but from a variety of disciplines, from universities across the East Midlands. Papers may address any time period or region, and should be no longer than 20 minutes.

We also welcome proposals for themed panels, either from one specific subject area, or from individual institutions. Additionally, we invite MA and MRes students to submit proposals – these can either be 20 minute papers, or they may choose to propose shorter 10 minute papers, which will be grouped as a single panel.

Abstracts of 200 – 250 words should be sent to the Conference Team at ntuhistpg@outlook.com by Wednesday 6th June 2018

If you have any questions regarding the conference, please do not hesitate to contact the Conference Team at the email address above.
