In addition to its own Events programme, the RHS provides listings for a wide range of external events and activities on behalf of the historical community. These external events include conferences, symposia, seminars, and lectures, as well as ‘calls for papers’, and prize deadlines.
- Browse the full listing below or use the navigation to select external events by category.
- You can submit an event for consideration here, or via the link below.
- RHS Fellows and Members receive a weekly News Circular (example: 8 February 2023) informing them of Society updates and new opportunities.
Please note: listing 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.
