As part of the Oxford Centre for Global History’s hosting of the 2018 Royal Historical Society Symposium, on 21 June we will be holding a workshop for early career researchers and advanced doctoral students in history. 

This small, informal workshop will discuss career progression, publishing, the REF, and other concerns regarding early careers in History.

This is open to ALL early career researchers (i.e. non-postholders) in History and ALL advanced-stage PhD/DPhil students in History.
