The next in a new RHS series of training workshops for early career historians.
The focus of this latest event (held on 7 December 2021) was ‘Creating Public History’: with our panellists, Professor Catherine Clarke, Dr Sara Huws and Amy Todd: three specialists in the co-production and community engagement in history.
The events of the past 18 months have fundamentally changed how, as archivists and historians, we now work—individually and collaboratively. In this year’s Gerald Aylmer Seminar, we invited archivists and historians of all kinds to come together to take stock of the extent, implications and future of these changes.
Under the theme of ‘New Ways to Work: future directions for archival and historical practice’, we considered how archivists and historians are working now, having been forced to make difficult decisions, to adapt and often to innovate in what we do and how we engage with one another. But in addition to looking at what’s changed, the Conference also also explored future ways of working: how do we best move forward in a relationship that won’t ‘return to normal’.
The Gerald Aylmer Seminar is an annual one-day symposium jointly convened by and the Royal Historical Society, The National Archives and the Institute of Historical Research. The Seminar brings together historians and archivists to discuss topics of mutual interest, particularly the nature of archival research and the use of collections.
The first in a new RHS series of training workshops. The focus of this event was publishing a first article: with advice from journal editors and recently published authors.
