Editorial Board: New Historical Perspectives book series

15 September 2021

The Royal Historical Society invites applications for up to four historians to join the Editorial Board of its successful ‘New Historical Perspectives’ book series, run in partnership with the Institute of Historical Research, University of London, and University of London Press.

New Historical Perspectives is a book series for early career scholars within the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Books in the series are overseen by an expert editorial board to ensure the highest standards of peer-reviewed scholarship. Commissioning and editing is undertaken by the Royal Historical Society, and the series is published under the imprint of the Institute of Historical Research by the University of London Press.

New Historical Perspectives aims to be inclusive and supportive to all early career scholars seeking to publish their first (or second) book. The Editorial Board also seeks to reflect this policy of diversity and inclusiveness in everything we do together. This has recently given rise to a new opportunity for up to 4 new members to join the Editorial Board as subject specialist reviewers.

This latest call will replace several existing members who have recently completed their 4-year term.

We especially welcome applications from historians in post-92 universities, and those working on neglected aspects of ethnicity, gender and global histories. In this endeavour, we seek to better reflect the diversity of researchers and academic interests in the sector. We also seek colleagues who have particular interests in medieval history or twentieth-century history (including global history).

If you wish to discuss the series or the board in advance of an application, please contact the Series Editors: Professor Elizabeth Hurren (University of Leicester, eh140@leicester.ac.uk) or Professor Heather Shore (Manchester Metropolitan University, h.shore@mmu.ac.uk).
