Edinburgh Centre for Global History Graduate Workshops

The Edinburgh Centre for Global History Graduate Workshops provide an excellent  opportunity  for  doctoral  students and early career researchers to meet and discuss their research in an informal setting. They take place throughout the academic year and are open to all.

Each workshop typically lasts an hour, comprised of a thirty-minute presentation followed by a question and answer session. The theme for the 2020/21 workshops is 'Migration, Slavery and Diasporas'.
