Historical Transactions Blog

Launched in 2018, as part of the commemoration of the Royal Historical Society’s 150th Anniversary, the RHS Historical Transactions blog complements our traditional forms of History publication, publicises the work of the Society and showcases the research and ideas of our Fellows, Members, and other historians. From 2020, the blog will also host a regular “Race Update” series as part of the ongoing work of the Race, Ethnicity and Equality Working Group.

The blog now provides an online space for the Royal Historical Society to share news and discussion about its work, and for historians to discuss their research, methodological ideas and reflections on history, in its widest sense.

Whether individual pieces are the result of invitation or a submitted proposal, we encourage engaging, accessible posts (of c.500-1000 words) that reflect the full diversity of methodological approaches, personal perspectives, time periods and geographical focus within current historical research, teaching and professional practice.
