RHS publishes Roadmap for Change Update II: the second update to its Race, Ethnicity and Equality in UK History report (2018).

25 November 2020

The RHS has today published Roadmap for Change Update II, the second update to its 2018 Race, Ethnicity and Equality in UK History report.

The report, authored by RHS Past & Present Fellow, Dr Diya Gupta, and RHS President, Professor Margot Finn, surveys the race, ethnicity and equality initiatives undertaken over the past year by the historical community in the UK. Its purview includes departments, faculties and schools, along with heritage organisations and learned societies, as well as the RHS itself.

Roadmap II follows on from the RHS’s initial publication Race, Ethnicity & Equality in UK History: A Report and Resource for Change (2018), which documented the overwhelming whiteness of the discipline of History, and the first Roadmap for Change I (2019), which gathered evidence on how individuals, universities, learned societies and other institutions responded to the 2018 report.
