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.
Recordings of first three events in 2021 and 2022 are available:
- ‘Getting Published: a Guide to First Articles and Journal Publishing’ (July 2021)
- ‘Creating Public History: a Guide to Co-Production and Community Engagement’ (December 2021)
- ‘Applying for a First Academic Job: a Guide to Preparing and Interviewing for a History Lectureship’ (March 2022)
