3 - 5pm 26th April 2016 (Trinity Term, Week 1)

Following her lecture on Rethinking Slavery and Freedom; Or, What is a Man? Professor Catherine Hall will be leading a graduate and early career workshop to discuss gender and race in historical perspective. The workshop will include up to 6 papers. To ensure maximum participation, the papers will be pre-circulated ahead of the workshop, and presenters will spend 10 minutes "speaking to the paper" followed by a response from Professor Hall and wider group discussion. Proposals encompassing any geographical area or chronological period, are warmly welcomed. Topics may include, but are not limited to, gender, race and empire.

Please send proposals of 300 words and a brief biography to by Friday 11th March (week 8). A programme and registration details will be circulated in mid-March.
