Calling all Cambridge Graduate Historians: Put yourself on the Map!

The University of Cambridge History Faculty is recognised as one of the world’s leading history departments and it is the largest amongst the humanities and social science faculties at Cambridge.

It is time to visualise the sheer diversity of the research being undertaken by History graduates. The map pins each student to their area of research and briefly outlines their thesis topic. Click here to discover who is reaching what and where.

Please note: locations are general and are at country or state level unless stated otherwise.

To get yourself on the map please leave a comment below, tweet us @CambridgeDHP, or comment via Facebook:

  1. Your name
  2. Level of study e.g.: MPhil or PhD
  3. Preliminary broad thesis title (we understand this constantly changes!)
  4. Location of fieldwork where you would like to be pinned (country or state level)

Thank you for your interest!

    Hello, I wanted to put myself on the map, but I wasn’t sure how, I’m an MPhil Studeny, with a dissertation title of ‘Paganism and Christianity in Scandinavian Emporia, c. 800-1000’, focused mainly on the modern regions of Denmark and Sweden. Many thanks!

    ‘Frederick II, Catherine II, and Stanislaw August Poniatowski’s correspondence and encounters with men of letters, ~1760-1790’

    My research clearly sprawls over a wide area, so let’s just say Prussia (Potsdam), Russia (St. Petersburg), and Poland (Warsaw).
