Events Programme for 2023 now available

20 December 2022

The Society’s 2023 listing for its first lectures, conferences and panels is now available. The year begins with lectures on early modern London (Thursday 12 January) and late Tsarist Russia (Wednesday 1 February).

On 29 March we launch our new-look day conference — History and Archives in Practice — co-organised with The National Archives and Institute of Historical Research. The 2023 event brings together historians and archivists to consider ‘Collecting Communities: Working Together and with Collections’. The programme and booking for #HAP2023 will be released from mid-January.

Details of further events — in the form of book launches, panels and training workshops, and including topics such as the historiography of colonial slavery, digital history and scholarly editing and editions for historians — will be added in the coming weeks.
