Posted on 8 July 2022

Join us for the University of York's first postgrad public history conference celebrating the research of MA, PhD & early career researchers

In collaboration with the Institute for the Public Understanding of the Past, the University of York is excited to be hosting the UK's first public history postgraduate student conference on 23 September 2022.

Organised by Public History MA and PhD students, Public History Grad Con is an opportunity for postgraduate students, early career researchers and career practitioners to discuss current issues in the public history field.

The day will be held in York with a wide range of public history papers, a professional practitioner panel and a keynote address from Thomas Cauvin, Associate Professor of Public History at the University of Luxembourg and former president of the International Federation for Public History (IFPH).

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, followed by an evening reception. The reception will be the annual celebration of the MA in Public History and IPUP, an opportunity to meet last year's students and incoming students, as well as network with practitioners across the city of York. If you are unable to join us during the day, you are welcome to register separately for this evening reception or vice-versa.

The conference programme runs from 10.00-17.30 followed by the reception from 18.30-20.00. Hybrid sessions will be facilitated for the keynote (10.15-11.00 BST) and practitioner panel sessions (4.30-5.30 BST).
