This material provides a useful platform for scholars to disseminate information about their collaborative or individual research projects.

JOUHS aims to: reflect the activities and interests of the Oxford University Historical Society; establish scholarly links in the varied community of historians at the University of Oxford; to serve as a discussion forum for the international community of undergraduates, postgraduate students and scholars. It also aims to provide a medium for contact between undergraduate, postgraduate students and established academics. We welcome submissions from students and scholars from both within and outside Oxford.

Please avoid self-identification within the article and the footnotes.
