*Deadline Reminder*History Idol –Leicester’s Got Talent!*Deadline Reminder*

Just a quick reminder guys n' dolls that you have one more week to get your entries in for History Idol: Leicester’s Got Talent!
We’ve had some cracking abstracts so far, but there’s plenty room for more.
The deadline is Friday 26th November, so if you would like the chance to share your Historical musings with the Lab next semester send your abstracts to Gill: gem10@le.ac.uk
We hope this will be a History Lab in the classic sense; a place to experiment. Perhaps, you have an idea that you don’t think is ready for you supervisor, but you’d like to road test on some History-minded people? Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries folks, even if it’s only a germ of an idea just now, presenting it at History Lab could help develop it into something BIG!!
So regardless of your position on the conveyor belt of academia we’d like to hear from you.
1) Please send us a 150 word abstract for a 15min presentation on any era and any theme. Include, your topic area, why you’re interested in it, and your approach to the subject.
2) Give it an attention grabbing title –make us want to hear it!
3) Following the deadline on the 26th we’ll put all the titles anonymously on the blog. Everyone will then have two weeks to vote for their favourite title. The winners will be announced on the 9th December (the last Lab before Christmas).
Good Luck!!
