Organizer: German Association for British Studies (AGF)

Date: November 29, 2024

In times of fundamental geopolitical reorientation of the United Kingdom, British studies face the challenge of critically questioning simplistic truths of political discourse and understanding the complexity of past and present events and actions.

Therefore, the tradition of the Early Career Workshop will continue at the annual conference of the German Association for British Studies (AGF). On November 29 2024, the eleventh Early Career Workshop of the AGF will take place. The event provides advanced master’s students, doctoral candidates, and post-docs working on the United Kingdom, Commonwealth, or British Empire the opportunity to present their projects and engage in discussions with other experts. Problem-oriented presentations from research practice of all epochs and disciplines are welcome. Membership in the AGF is not required. All workshop participants are invited to participate in the AGF conference “Environment and Empire. ‘A Place for Stories: Nature, History, and Narrative’ – reconsidered” on November 29 and 30, which follows the Early Career Workshop.

To ensure productive exchange, participants are asked to submit a brief summary of their project (maximum 5 pages) upon acceptance, which will then be circulated and discussed. Presentations of 15-20 minutes followed by discussion are planned. A flat-rate subsidy for travel and accommodation may be provided. For applications, please submit an abstract of maximum 500 words and a brief academic CV in German or English to lea.levenhagen@uni-bayreuth.de. The deadline is August 31, 2024. For inquiries, please feel free to contact us.
