For many years, History UK plenary conferences have addressed major issues affecting the historical profession. This year’s theme, ‘From REF to TEF’, reflects concerns over the implications for History departments of the Stern Review and the Higher Education and Research Bill.
The speakers – Prof Margot Finn (President-elect, RHS), Prof Sir Rick Trainor (Rector, Exeter College, Oxford), Dr Geoff Stoakes (Head of Research, HEA) and Dr Marcus Collins (Co-Convenor, HUK) – will consider likely changes to the REF, the disciplinary implications of the TEF and the competing demands of research and teaching. Their insights into the design, operation and monitoring of the audit process will help historians to negotiate the changing academic landscape.
