We also host listings for a wide range of external events and activities on behalf of the historical community including conferences, symposia, seminars, and lectures, as well as Calls for Papers, and Prize deadlines.

Members and Fellows receive a weekly email digest informing them of new opportunities.
Please note: listing on this noticeboard is not an indication of the Royal Historical Society’s support for an event, and we remind organisers of the recommendations in our 2018 reports on Race, Ethnicity and Equality and Gender Equality: events in the discipline should be diverse and inclusive.
