External Events

On the noticeboard below you will find information about the wide array of historical events taking place in the coming months around the country including conferences, symposia, seminars, and lectures, as well as Calls for Papers. 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.

The Royal Historical Society archive enables you to access videos of our lectures and other Society events.
