Please note that these online sessions are not a replacement for the EHS Annual Conference, and new researchers are made up of postgraduates and early career researchers. 

The sessions will last no longer than 1 hour and 15 minutes, with time for questions and discussion at the end. Presenters are appearing from across the world, and times have been chosen to best accommodate this. 

We welcome and encourage attendance from anyone interested in economic and social history. All sessions are available for members and non-members of the EHS.
