Research Seminar Series

History’s Research Seminar Series offers the Western and London communities the chance to hear historical researchers of all sorts – academic and public historians from our own department and from across North America – present the findings of their research. Always engaging, always topical, and always in-person and on Zoom, throughout the school year.

All sessions will be held at 12:30pm in LWH2270C or via zoom.
