Past & Present Postdoctoral Fellowship: Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History

For the past several years, the Society has been actively involved in monitoring and enhancing equalities issues in UK History, producing reports on gender equality in the discipline in 2015 and 2018 and its first report on Race, Ethnicity & Equality in UK History in 2018, followed by a 2019 ‘Roadmap for Change Update’.

The RHS is now advertising a new Past & Present Postdoctoral Fellowship: Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History.

The advertised post, funded by the Past & Present Society, is intended to support and continue the Society’s equalities work, with an especial focus on race and ethnicity. It will build on the work undertaken by the Society’s first Past & Present Fellow: Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History, who is taking up a full time, permanent Lectureship in History in September 2020.

Full details of the post and application process are available to download here.
