Introducing ‘Doing History in Public’ – a new 3-part Conversation for historians

26 February 2024

The Royal Historical Society is pleased to announce ‘Doing History in Public’, a new series of online ‘Conversations’ (April, June and September 2024) to explore historians’ experiences of working publicly – with museums and galleries, in print, and via broadcasting. Our 3 evidence-gathering Conversations seek to identify resources and guidance most useful to support those ‘doing history in public’.

Registration is now open for the first session, ‘Doing History in Public: Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums’, which takes place at 2pm on Tuesday 30 April.

This and subsequent Conversations will bring together interested RHS Fellows and Members to contribute to discussions, and to identify issues and where resources might be useful. Conversation themes will be organised around a series of public venues and formats in which historical research is undertaken and communicated:

Please note: this series is reserved for current Fellows and Members of the Royal Historical Society.

For those wishing to join the Society, we offer a range of options including Fellowship, Associate Fellowship, Membership and Postgraduate Membership. Applications to join the Society are welcome at any time.
