Lancaster Historical Postgraduate Conference, ‘Histfest’, is an annual academic postgraduate conference hosted by the history community at Lancaster University. The conference has run since 1995, 2023 marks the 27th annual Histfest at Lancaster. Once again, this year's Histfest will be a hybrid event, with panels occurring both in-person and online (via Microsoft Teams).
Histfest is organised by PhD and MA students in the History Department of Lancaster University and is designed to provide a supportive and constructive space for students and ECRs to present their work.
Histfest provides a vibrant and stimulating conference attended by postgraduates and early career researchers from around the UK and overseas. The conference provides an opportunity to present research in a welcoming and supportive environment. The conference and first-day dinner also provide excellent networking opportunities for speakers.
This year the conference is hosted within Lancaster University's Management School, situated in the south of Lancaster University's Main Campus.
