I‘m a historian. I‘m a fish out of water in this seminar on robots! 

Explanation:

‘Fish out of water’ refers to someone who is uncomfortable in a specific situation. A historian is a person who studies and writes about the past. So, in a seminar on robots, the person must be feeling awkward or uncomfortable. ‘Fish out of water’ fits perfectly in the context of the sentence.  ‘Drop in the bucket’ refers to something small and unimportant, especially when compared with something else.  ‘Fly in the ointment’ refers to a minor irritation that spoils the success or enjoyment of something.  ‘Fly on the wall’  refers to an unnoticed observer of a particular situation.
