Seminars on Collecting and Display, Institute of Historical Research, London, October 2017–June 2018

The conveners of the Seminar for Collecting and Display, London, invite applications for papers for their monthly seminars at the Institute of Historical Research between October 2017 and June 2018. The Seminar provides a forum for academics to present new research on any topic related to collecting in its widest understanding, both chronologically and in terms of subject matter. We also welcome papers that look at collecting from different perspectives, given by sociologists, cultural historians or art historians.

Seminar papers are normally 45 minutes in length followed by an extended discussion.
