Zoom in to BrANCH 2020 (Online)

October 10, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - October 11, 2020 @ 4:30 pm

In place of their annual conference this year, BrANCH are hosting a series of online workshops. Join them for a weekend of detailed discussions!

To attend, please register online here.

About this Event

Rather than traditional seminars or panels, this year BrANCH will be coming together to discuss pre-circulated papers. They hope to make the most of the online format, bringing together the BrANCH community across the UK, US, and beyond. While they encourage members to attend as many sessions as possible, registration is for individual sessions.

Take note of the time of the session you wish to attend – this is what you will need to book your place. Links to the Zoom meetings will be sent out to all attendees shortly before the sessions.

BrANCH are aware of the difficulties that members are currently facing, especially those with caring responsibilities. They hope that this format allows as many people as possible to get involved.

Please note: this year, all sessions will take a workshop format with pre-circulated papers. Ensure you register in advance in order to receive the relevant materials. Papers will be sent out to participants on Friday 25 September.

All participants must be BrANCH members. More information on BrANCH membership, including how to join, can be found here.

There is no conference fee for this year’s event. In lieu of a fee, BrANCH would welcome your donation to our Peter J. Parish Memorial Fund. The Fund is at the heart of BrANCH’s charitable efforts to help the next generation of British historians to embark successfully on a career of research into the history of the United States between 1789 and 1917. More information, including how to donate, can be found here.
