This one-day conference aims to bring together early career researchers, postgraduate students and family historians, interested in using archival, bibliographic and other kinds of primary source data to illuminate the social history of culture in eighteenth-century England.
This conference will invite scholars and students from all disciplines who are looking to expand their knowledge of the data available from the long eighteenth century. The programme will be selected to promote different types of data and information, to refresh the possibilities open to scholars, and forge new collaborations in the inclusion of these documents within wider historical studies.
Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers, or for alternative formats of presentations such as short demonstrations of databases (10 minutes) or workshop sessions (30 mins), on topics related to the theme of the conference, including (but not limited to):
Insurance records from around the country
Archives and their holdings
Existing databases and how to build your own
Computerised analysis of primary sources, including techniques from Big Data research
Abstracts of less than 200 words, with a short biography of less than 100 words, and AV requirements, should be submitted as an email attachment to becky.gribble -at- rhul.ac.uk by 5.00pm on 13 January 2017. Applicants will be notified for decisions in February. Please also state what format your proposal would take.
A limited number of travel bursaries will be available for those within three years of completing their PhD. If you would like to be considered for one of these, please include a paragraph of no more than 300 words on why attending the conference will improve your personal development and research project and the expected travel cost.
