Conferencing: Part II

Now that the dust has settled on my first two academic conferences, it seems like a good time to sit down and reflect on the experience.First up, the two day Transatlantic Historical Approaches Workshop, held by King’s in conjunction with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Nothing quite like two rainy, cold British summertime days to welcome our American panelists. I was first up, bright and early, at 9am, to give my paper, alongside Josh Lynn from the UNC. Giving the paper was surprisingly non-daunting – I think I must have used up all my nervous energy back when I gave my lecture.Here is a rather unflattering image of me talking, courtesy of the mistress of ceremonies Amy Kavanagh.Admittedly I overran a little, which was a key thing to take away, and that I think I managed to nail more or less when it came to presenting at the History Lab conference a couple of weeks later. But the best part of the learning curve that this event represented was sitting down on day two with Josh, to discuss how we plan to collaborate in forming our panel for the UNC leg of the workshop
