        From: Mia Ridge 
        Subject: IHR Digital History Seminar Call for Papers: now open!

Are you a researcher trying out some digital methods, tools or resources as
a means of exploring historical phenomena? Is your historical research made
possible by the use of electronic tools and resources? Do you have a
work-in-progress project? Are you seeking a friendly, critical environment
in which to share your preliminary findings, successes, and failures?

The Institute of Historical Research Digital History Seminar
(https://ihrdighist.blogs.sas.ac.uk/) brings together a range of scholars
to discuss and debate cutting edge historical research that incorporates
digital resources and methods. We aim not to drive the agenda, but for the
agenda to be driven by current discussion and debate. The seminar has a
great 2019/20 programme (details coming soon!) but we are still looking for
papers from historians at any stage of their career, including those
visiting the UK in the next 12 months, to make it even more vibrant.

So if you are interested in giving a paper, look at our advice to speakers
(https://ihrdighist.blogs.sas.ac.uk/advice-for-speakers/) to see what a
paper at the IHR Digital History seminar entails, and email a description
(circa two to three sentences in length) of your proposed paper to James
Baker (james.baker@sussex.ac.uk) no later than 28 June 2019.

About the seminar

Seminars are usually held from 5:30pm on Tuesdays, at Senate House in
London and livecast on YouTube. Attendees in London are welcome to join the
seminar convenors and speaker(s) for a drink in the IHR afterwards.

The Digital History Seminar has been running since 2012 and focuses on the
discussion of historical research that has been made possible by the use of
electronic tools and resources. We welcome anyone with an interest in
digital history, including academics, students, cultural heritage and
digital humanities practitioners, and other researchers.

The conveners are: Mia Ridge (British Library), Justin Colson (Essex),
Matthew Shaw (IHR), Melodee Beals (Loughborough), James Baker (Sussex),
Tessa Hauswedell (UCL), and Richard Deswarte (UEA).
