The Royal Historical Society runs a varied programme of events throughout the year, including our own prestigious lectures, and twice-yearly symposia hosted by history departments around Britain.

The full programme for 2020 is available here.

We are currently working with colleagues and speakers to make contingency plans for our upcoming events. We will communicate any changes as they are confirmed, thank you for bearing with us. Please read our COVID-19 guidance here.

Event Podcast and Video Archive

The media archive enables you to access podcasts and videos of our lectures and other Society events.

External Events

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. Submit your notice using the link below or use the page menu to search and browse the wide range of upcoming events and other notices of interest to historians.

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.
