About us

History Lab is the national network for postgraduate students in history and related disciplines. Based at the Institute of Historical Research, it is an intellectual and social forum designed to meet the needs of the postgraduate history community. Meetings are an opportunity for the next generation of historians to discuss ideas and to drive the study of history forward.

We run a diverse series of events throughout the academic year:, including a biweekly research seminar, workshops on method, our ‘meet the historian’ evenings, and frequent socials.

Full details of our upcoming programme can be found here, and you can join us here.

We look forward to seeing you!
