Essex students making their mark on the Berlin Wall, 1989

Lectures, seminars and conferences for all

The Department of History runs an exciting programme of events which everybody is welcome to attend.

The History research seminar meets Wednesday afternoons during term time to discuss a paper by a visiting historian or an academic staff member from Essex. We also frequently organise larger conferences for academic staff and postgraduate students alike to share their research among their peers and seek interesting new opportunities for collaboration.
