The Centre for the History of Violence at the University of Newcastle, Australia will be holding a one day workshop for beginning historians and early career researchers on Thursday 2 August.

This one-day workshop will bring together young researchers (PhD candidates, post-doctoral scholars) working in the intersecting fields of imperial and transnational history, racism and studies of violence. The programme will feature two expert speakers.

The expert speakers will be:

  • Lyndall Ryan (University of Newcastle): Race, Violence and Empire.
  • Kit Candlin (University of Newcastle): Slavery, Violence and the Atlantic World.

The rest of the day will consist of three sessions focusing on a selection of questions and topics given by a pre-circled reading list. Contributors will briefly present on their research areas followed by focused discussions that aim to unearth common themes and connections between individual projects, theories and frameworks.

How to Apply

Those wishing to attend must submit a short CV (one page) and a short abstract (200-300 words) about your research topic and how it relates to the workshop in a single Microsoft Word document.

The workshop is limited to 25 participants.
