The Edinburgh-Oxford Modern Spanish History Doctoral Seminar is a student-led initiative which offers postgraduate researchers in the United Kingdom a unique opportunity to present their findings to their peers, discuss their approaches and methods, and engage with the latest historiographical developments in the field. It welcomes participants at every stage of their doctoral studies with the ambition of highlighting the exceptional diversity of research on modern Spanish history taking place in institutions across the country.
Although most participants are based in the United Kingdom, outside papers are welcomed from doctoral candidates studying in Spanish universities.
The sessions are held online using Microsoft Teams on Fridays at 13:00 (GMT), unless stated otherwise.
The weekly hour and a half sessions will begin with a 20-30-minute seminar paper by a participant or guest speaker, followed by moderated Q&As and an open discussion. Weekly speakers are invited to distribute any relevant primary or secondary materials to the group in advance of the seminar, be it an essay draft, a thesis chapter, or some of the archival materials they have consulted in the course of their research. Supervisors are also encouraged to join whenever possible. Guests are welcome and can send their requests to attend to the seminar organisers who will provide relevant links.
