The 28th Postgraduate Research Students Conference of the German Historical Institute London will take place on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 January 2024. The Conference aims to give postgraduate research students from the UK and Ireland working on German history the opportunity to present their work-in-progress and to discuss their research with other students working in the same field.

The Conference is intended for postgraduate research scholars working on German history from the Middle Ages to the present at a UK or Irish university.
