HISTORY BEYOND BORDERS - PGR and ECR training event announced (Northumbria Uni, 30 April)

‘Histories beyond borders: exploring transnational and international histories’

30 April 2013, Northumbria University (Newcastle upon Tyne).
The Histories of Activism research group at Northumbria University is holding a full-day workshop titled ‘History beyond borders: exploring transnational and international histories’ on 30 April 2013. The workshop is designed to introduce and discuss recent trends in research regarding international and transnational history. During the event, postgraduates and early-career researchers will have the opportunity to discuss their own research with established academics in this field and to connect with the wider research community.

The workshop will also include two training sessions concerned with post-doc funding and the use of overseas archives, which will give attendees the opportunity to raise any issues that they have encountered during their research. The day will conclude with a seminar paper by Dr Rebecca Gill (University of Huddersfield) on the transnational dimensions of British war relief work in the late 19th century. For the full programme, please click here!

To stimulate discussions during the day, attendees will be asked to provide a short description of their research (approx. 250 words). The organsers will also circulate a brief discussion paper before the actual event in order to stimulate debate on the day.

As we have only limited spatial capacities, we would like to ask all interested persons to register for the workshop. If you wish to attend, please contact:
