Training Workshops for Early Career Historians

 

In 2021 the Society began a new programme of ‘Getting Started’ training workshops with a focus on Early Career Historians.

Events are held three times each year and bring together specialist historians to offer guidance and advice on topics relating to historical research, teaching, publishing, communication and employment.

The Society’s training workshops are reserved for RHS members: details of how to join the Society as a Postgraduate Member and Associate Fellow are available — along with our other membership packages.

Recordings of first two events of 2021 — ‘Getting Published: a Guide to First Articles and Journal Publishing’ and ‘Creating Public History: a Guide to Co-Production and Community Engagement’ — are available:

Three workshops are planned for 2022 (in March, July and December) with a focus on careers for historians in Higher Education and in other non-HE sectors, as well as on broadcasting and communicating your research. Further details of these session will be made available later in 2022.
