It has become nationally known for promoting historical innovation and conceptual discussion, and all history research and MA students are expected to attend. In addition, History postgraduate students organise and participate in a biannual day conference of their own, and have the opportunity to participate in other workshops on specific academic issues and skills relevant to both MA and doctoral work.
