October 28, 2013 Leave a comment
The conference is an opportunity for undergraduates to explore and expand their interests in a particular historical topic or theme in a challenging but supportive environment. Students will be able to test ideas, developing those all-important academic and professional skills.
The History Society hopes that the conference will attract undergraduate historians from other universities to St Andrews.
The theme of the 2013-14 conference is Individuals and Impact in History. The Society is requesting papers that take as their central focus an individual who made a particular impact. The theme can be widely interpreted, some issues that could be explored include:
- Specific contributions of individuals to particular fields (science, politics, religion etc.)
- Relationships with institutions, movements, groups or/and other individuals.
- Approaches to the study of individuals, e.g. psychohistory, anthropology, literary approaches.
- Representations and realities, myths and legends.
