Call for Papers: Oxford History & Social Science Workshop

The organizers of the Oxford History & Social Science Workshop welcome papers from early career researchers (graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and pre-tenured faculty), especially dissertation chapters/papers or projects that have grown out of a doctoral thesis. We are primarily interested in two types of papers: 1) research from the social sciences (e.g. economics, politics, sociology, geography, law) that has a significant historical dimension and 2) work by historians that uses social science methods or addresses questions in social science. We take a broad view of social science and history and also welcome papers from other humanities disciplines that touch on social science and history. Both qualitative and quantitative methods are welcomed, and research that crosses disciplinary boundaries is particularly encouraged.

Presentations will be 30–40 minutes (precise timings to be determined) to an audience of early career researchers and faculty. The workshop will be held early in Hilary Term.

Please send a title and abstract (up to about 1 page in length), as well as a short (1–2 page) CV, to by 7 December 2018.

Organizers: Ben Schneider (Merton College) and Giacomo Gabbuti (St Antony’s College)
