Symposia series

Organised and run by the team of the Ex Historia History PGR Journal, the Ex Historia Symposia series is a termly programme of historically-focused papers from all periods, topics and themes. Symposia are a fantastic opportunity for PGRs to present and discuss their work in a relaxed and constructive atmosphere, as well as providing a space for researchers to meet, learn about each other’s work, and identify related research themes and interests.  They are also a great place to test out upcoming conference papers, new ideas, or merely outline current research.

Past papers have ranged from those examining literary ghosts in eleventh-century Germany to presentations on genocide defendants in Rwanda, to trade union political funding in 1930s Britain. Refreshments are provided, and all sessions are followed by a trip to one of Exeter’s many fine public houses, where further informal discussion is encouraged.

Ex Historia symposiums always take place on Thursdays at 17:00. However, make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to receive updates about the exact venues! Likewise, if you are currently not on our mailing list, email us at:
