German History Society Annual Conference 2015

3-5 September 2015 at Queen Mary University of London

The sixth Annual Conference of the German History Society will take place at Queen Mary University of London from the 3rd to the 5th of September 2015.

Registration is free for all members of the German History Society, so if you are not a member and wish to attend, we strongly encourage you to join. The membership fee is less than the one-off registration fee and includes a subscription to the journal ‘German History‘. If you wish to attend the conference but do not want to become a member, you may pay (by cash or check) a fee of £30 (€35) at registration on site.  The fee is £10 (€12) for non-GHS members not in current employment.

All participants on panels (those presenting papers as well as chairs) will be on our initial registration lists, so you do not need to do anything further to register. But to avoid the one-off registration fee, please be sure that you have a GHS membership for 2015.

Participants are expected to make their own arrangements for accommodations and meals (with the exception of lunch on Friday, which will be provided). Some suggestions for accommodation are listed below. Please note that the opening keynote and reception on Thursday evening will be at the German Historical Institute in Bloomsbury, while the conference sessions on Friday and Saturday and the Annual General Meeting on Saturday will be on the Mile End campus of Queen Mary University of London, a few miles to the east. There are generally more and better accommodation options in Bloomsbury, and it is also more central, so our recommendations focus on this area. The Holborn and Russell Square underground stations are close to the GHIL and connect via the Picadilly line to Heathrow airport. From Holborn, you can also take the Central line to Mile End, adjacent to QMUL.
