Histfest Annual Conference

Histfest is the annual conference organised by postgraduate students in the Department of History at Lancaster University. It provides an opportunity for students at any stage of progress to present papers associated with their work in a supportive environment with a constructive audience. The conference welcomes papers from any field of historical research and related disciplines and enables participants to engage with students from different institutions sharing similar interests.
