HOST seminars

HOST seminars in a nutchell

Every two weeks, HOST organizes a seminar. During these seminars, historical work in preparation of HOST-members will be discussed, but also we gladly welcome researchers from other teams and universities. The papers to be discussed should have a particular relevance to ongoing research from HOST. HOST seminars offer a unique opportunity to get reviewed texts such as conference papers, book chapters, academic articles, research projects etc. We freely discuss the content of the texts as well as their style.

Papers are sent to all team members one week in advance of the seminar. Seminars take place from late August until the Christmas break, and from February until the summer break.

If you would like to attend one or more seminars and/or if you would like to discuss some of your recent work, please send a mail to HOST@vub.be.
