Teaching History in Higher Education/New to Teaching History

Here at History Lab Plus, we’re very pleased to support both the New to Teaching History event taking place at the Institute for Historical Research on 7th September and the Teaching History in Higher Education Conference, also taking place at the IHR on the 8th and 9th September. Both will be excellent events and the programme below includes some great speakers, many of whom have contributed to History Lab Plus events in the past. The New to Teaching event is free to PhDs and early-career scholars (scroll down to the link to register at the bottom of this post); there are also a limited number of conference fee bursaries for the larger conference for ECRs, but you must contact Peter D’Sena at the email address below for details. Attendance is highly recommended!

REGISTRATION FEE: £96.05 per person for both days; £53.65 if registering for only one day.  For information about bursaries for students, please contact Peter D’Sena by e-mail at peterdsena@yahoo.comFor early career academics, bursaries are available – but please contact Peter first!


On the evening of Tuesday 8th September, there will be a meal nearby at a good quality restaurant. Information will be sent to all delegates about this as soon as we have an idea about numbers.  The approximate cost will be between £40 and £50.  In the past this has always been a convivial occasion and a good way to carry on networking with delegates.

There’s also a New to Teaching event on Monday 7th September (see IHR site).  It’s free (funding to support that from the RHS). The event is now on IHR Histevents: http://events.history.ac.uk/event/show/14375
