Modern European History Research Centre (MEHRC)
We are delighted to announce that the Modern European History Research Centre (MEHRC), based in Oxford University’s History Faculty, has decided to join the list of sponsors of our upcoming conference “Roots of restlessness? Translations in Times of Disruption” (St. Peter’s College, 10 May 2014). The Call for Papers for both the conference and its opening session will close on 31st January (CFP for conference and CFP for session).
The MEHRC was set up in 1999 to generate new and exciting research projects in European and British history from the Renaissance to the present, to build research networks with institutes and universities in the UK, Europe and worldwide, to provide opportunities for research collaboration and facilities for visiting researchers, and to train new generations of research students in the field of Modern European and British History.
The Centre encourages international collaboration between research students through annual graduate workshops held in conjunction with the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, Paris, the Université Libre de Bruxelles, the Humboldt University, Berlin, and with Geneva University. It is supported by around forty leading historians at Oxford, from which it draws its management committee. This is headed by the Chair, Dr David Hopkin; Research Director, Dr Tom Buchanan and supported by the Administrator, Jane Cunning.
