A Royal Historical Society workshop led by Dr Jonathan Saha

This free interactive workshop will build upon themes discussed during The State of History panel*. Key areas to be explored:

  • Building interdisciplinary networks
  • Access to history

The workshop is open to all, and we particularly encourage students, academics, history teachers, museum and heritage professionals, authors and public historians to attend.
