Events and Conferences

Calendar of events

The calendar of events lists all conferences, workshops and lectures at the German Historical Institute in chronological order.

Seminars and Lectures

The GHIL regularly holds seminars and lectures on topics of general interest to British and German historians. Seminars are held Tuesdays at 5.30pm during term time. Seminar papers are normally presented in English; knowledge of the German language is not necessary for participation.

Conferences and Workshops

In addition to the seminar programme, academic conferences and workshops are organised in Britain or in Germany. They are intended to facilitate contact between British and German historians working in the same field, and to promote an exchange of information about new methodological approaches and recent research.

Annual Lecture

The Annual Lectures are delivered in November by eminent historians and subsequently published by the Institute.

Postgraduate Students Conference

In January each year the Institute holds its annual Postgraduate Students Conference

GHIL Colloquia

We also hold informal colloquia at regular intervals, where GHIL scholarship-holders are given an opportunity to present their projects to the staff and to other historians working in their field. Colloquia are held in German.
