Videos of Society events held in July are now available:
- The 2022 Prothero Lecture – the Society’s central event of the year, given this year by Professor Rohan McWilliam (Anglia Ruskin University): ‘The Gaiety Girl and the Matinee Idol. Constructing Celebrity and Sexuality in the West End of London, 1880-1914’.
- Careers in History outside Higher Education – the latest in our series of training workshops for historians. This session (14 July) provided specialist advice on ‘Working in History outside Higher Education. A Guide to Professions Outside Academia’. It follows a first career-related panel — ‘Applying and Interviewing for your First History Lectureship’ — held in March 2022.
In addition to these recent events, recordings of all RHS lectures and panels, 2020-22, are available here.
Our next event, held via Twitter from 4pm on Friday 22 July, is the announcement of recipients of the Society’s Prizes and Awards for 2022.
The next RHS lecture is Dr Su Lin Lewis (Bristol) on ‘Decolonising the History of Internationalism’. This lecture takes place on Friday 16 September 2022, and will be held at University College London and live-streamed for those unable to attend in person. Booking for this event will open shortly.
