HistFest 2019 Presents: Exploring Historical Transitions: Space, Place, and Identity

The focus of this conference is to be on the changing dynamics of the past, and encompasses studies on space, place, identity, belonging, and the shifting landscapes of social, cultural, political and economic history.

Our aim is to act as a forum where conversation can flourish and new fruitful connections can be made. We have invited students to share their ‘research in progress’ and to receive constructive feedback from their supportive peers.
