The conveners of the Seminar for Collecting and Display, London, invite applications for papers for their monthly seminars at the Institute of Historical Research between October 2017 and June 2018. The Seminar provides a forum for academics to present new research on any topic related to collecting in its widest understanding, both chronologically and in terms of subject matter. We also welcome papers that look at collecting from different perspectives, given by sociologists, cultural historians or art historians.
Seminar papers are normally 45 minutes in length followed by an extended discussion. We are unable to cover travel costs but may be able to help with accommodation and expenses.
Applicants should send an abstract of approximately 300 words together with a short CV to [log in to unmask] by 8 September 2017. We will then reply to organise the date with the successful candidates.
