RHS Teaching Prizes, 2022: applications invited

7 March 2022


Applications are now invited for the 2022 RHS Teaching Prizes in History. The Society awards two prizes annually in recognition of excellence, long-service and innovation in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.

The Jinty Nelson Award for Inspirational Teaching and Supervision in History

Named in honour of the Society’s first female President, Professor Dame Janet (Jinty) Nelson FBA, the prize rewards outstanding and sustained commitment to supervision — in particular those who are inspiring the next generation of historians to excel through undergraduate or postgraduate teaching.

The Royal Historical Society Innovation in Teaching Award

The  Society’s Innovation Award focuses on excellence in teaching at either undergraduate or postgraduate level.

Potential applicants may, for example, be individuals or groups of scholars working in collaboration, whose teaching has opened up the use of research materials by undergraduate or postgraduate students, or who have fostered new and original approaches to the discipline.

We now invite people to apply based on their record of teaching. We also ask colleagues to encourage their fellow historians to apply where a career or innovative teaching is deserving of recognition.

Further details on the prizes, eligibility and how to apply are available here.

The closing date for application is Monday 23 May 2022 with the winners announced at the Society’s annual awards ceremony on Friday 29 July 2022.
