The Institute of Historical Research’s PGRs Network, the HistoryLab, is pleased to announce the workshop “Demonology through the ages” aimed at PGRs and ECRs.
The day will be structured to offer as much discussion and feedback as possible, in line with the HistoryLab’s aims of supporting UK-based postgraduates, their research, and professional development. It will comprise a PGRs roundtable, and ECRs papers session, two keynote presentations, and a networking session at the end of the day. The keynote speakers, times and details of the sessions will be confirmed shortly.

This interdisciplinary workshop is open to UK-based postgraduate students working on any aspect and topic related to demonology, such as (but not limited to) religious and intellectual history, folklore, witchcraft, exorcism, material and visual culture, philosophy, and supernatural beliefs.
We particularly encourage submissions with a transhistorical and interdisciplinary approach, but case studies related to a specific historical period, geographical area, text, or artifact are also welcome.

The workshop will be delivered both in person and online. A few bursaries for PGRs presenting their research will be awarded by the HistoryLab to cover travel costs.

For any questions please get in touch with convenors Olivia Garro (HistoryLab chair - CAMC Coventry, and Viola Moschettini (independent curator,
