Graduate Workshop on Comparative Historical Research on Europe
July 11, 2017
Univeristy of Glasgow
The Network on the Historical Study of States and Regimes of the Council for European Studies and the University of Glasgow are pleased to announce the Fourth Annual Graduate Workshop on Comparative Historical Research. The workshop is intended to provide advanced graduate students an opportunity to present their research and receive intensive feedback from a select audience of faculty and other graduate students working on comparative historical topics in European politics and society. It will be a one day event held on July 11 2017, one day prior to the 24th Annual Conference on European Studies in Glasgow.
We seek applications from advanced graduate students working on comparative historical topics on Europe. The process is open to graduate students working in any discipline in the humanities and social sciences using any methodology or approach. Further we are open to work that is concerned both with explaining past outcomes or that looks at the impact of past developments in explaining contemporary outcomes. Priority will be given to students who are advanced in the preparation of their dissertations. Candidates may present work from their dissertations or other papers on which they are interested in receiving feedback. We anticipate inviting eight students to present their work in an all-day conference to be held at the University of Glasgow. Students will be required to provide their papers in advance and to make a short presentation of that paper. A faculty mentor will be assigned as discussant and provide in-depth feedback. Additional time will be available for a general discussion of the work with all assembled faculty and graduate students.
Application materials include a one page précis of the research to be presented, a curriculum vitae, and a short letter of endorsement from the student's graduate advisor. Students will be responsible for their own expenses for room, travel and board and are encouraged to seek support to attend the workshop from their home institutions. There is no fee to participate in the workshop and breakfast and lunch will be provided. Additionally all selected graduate students will receive a registration fee waiver to attend the 24th Annual Meeting of the CES in Glasgow. Other costs need to be covered by the student or their department.
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2017. Students will receive notification on or about April 15, 2017.
