The HCW seminar series at the University of Birmingham engages with the latest research of internal and external postgraduates, and fosters lively and stimulating academic discussion within an informal and relaxed atmosphere. We welcome all postgraduates and early career researchers who specialise in the study of history, cultures and area studies; emphasising a broad scope in both geographic and chronological terms.
The seminar series is HCW’s most regular event and provides excellent opportunities to keep in touch with fellow postgraduates at the University, and network with external speakers. The seminar is also attended by staff and undergraduates. We also record certain seminar series papers and make them available online as podcasts – please follow this link for podcasts from the 2011/12 Seminar Series.
