We have organised a series of three methodology workshops for research students in the Birkbeck history department, starting with one led by Dr Lee Jones on 28 May 2014.
A senior lecturer in the School of Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary, University of London, Dr Jones’ workshop will show how a historical materialist approach might be used to interpret ideological developments over time. The workshop will be held 6-8pm in the Dreyfus Room (2.02) in 28 Russell Square. Full details – including a short reading list – will be published here on birkbeckhistoryphd.org soon.
For the second workshop – held 5-7pm on 10 July (venue TBC) – we have booked Professor Ludmilla Jordanova of the University of Durham, who will discuss critical thinking.
The third workshop in this series will be held during the autumn term of 2014: please send your suggestions for topics and/or UK-based academics to Barbara and Emma (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com).
