Family History Workshops
Organised by Julia Laite (Birkbeck, University of London) in partnership with the Raphael Samuel History Centre and Historians Collaborate. These workshops are generously funded by the British Academy.
Who can attend?
Historians of all types: amateur, professional, something in between. We only ask that you have an interest in family history.
Our mosaic of free online workshops...
A BIG thank you to our funders the British Academy for making these workshops possible!
Get Involved With:
Telling Small Stories, Telling Big Stories Event
We will explore:
- How historians (of all types) might better collaborate through family history
- The ethical, methodological and political challenges of family history
- How family history can change the way we think about our history and our present
- How we might go about placing family histories in broader historical and political contexts and
- How family history and genealogy might help more ‘traditional’ historians understand their subjects
We invite expressions of interest from academic historians, family historians and genealogists (of any description) with significant experience (formal or informal) who would like to give short, informal presentations or contribute to panel conversations on these topics.
Please send your expressions of interest (150 words or less) to Julia Laite at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating what you are working on and what topic you might like to speak to at the event. We may not be able to accommodate all requests to speak, but all will be welcome to attend the online event!
Historians across Boundaries with the Institute of Historical Research (IHR)
We are excited to announce a series of interactive seminars, designed to help bring researchers interested in the past together, whatever their backgrounds or particular research focus. We want to share best practice and work out how we can encourage greater collaboration.
As part of this series (in order to help you share your thoughts and continue the chat outside of the seminar sessions), we’ll be conducting regular twitter hours on a Wednesday at 8pm. Look for #HistoryHour or follow us on Twitter @HistCollab.
