The GHS Annual Conference

The GHS Annual Conference is a great place for scholars and enthusiasts of German history to meet and share their ideas. The conference is hosted at a different venue in the UK or Ireland every year, and features a wide range of speakers on many subjects of German history.

The Society invites historians of Germany from all parts of the world to submit panel proposals on their research topics in German history broadly conceived, including the history of German-speaking people within and beyond Europe, from the medieval period to the present day. Postgraduate students are explicitly encouraged to participate in panels or to submit their own panel proposals or individual papers. The annual conference is intended to offer a friendly, constructive environment in which to present work completed and work in progress to a specialist audience.

Please also note that becoming a member of the Society is necessary to attend our annual conference free of charge if you are not yet a member. To join the Society, please visit our website at:
