The Department of Historical Studies hosts
an occasional seminar series. The
seminar is a forum for scholarly works in progress and aims to be a rigorous
intellectual space of scholarly exchange within the university and the wider
We pre-circulate the seminar paper via the
departmental email list, and in order to enhance discussion we strongly
encourage seminar participants to read the paper before-hand. Refreshments are
also provided and socialising after the seminar is often very convivial.
Should you wish to be added to our mailing
list please email Stephen Sparks at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to
present your work, please e-mail Natasha Erlank at email@example.com. Please
note that in terms of an understanding between ourselves and our Wits
colleagues, where visiting scholars present at both UJ and Wits, distinct
papers are insisted upon in order to avoid direct replication.
