Visits are an important opportunity, for members of the Society’s Council and staff, to meet with historians, researchers and students, and to discuss priorities, interests and concerns relating to research, teaching and the profession.
Having met with colleagues at Edge Hill and Northampton earlier this year, the Society continues its 2023 programme of Visits to history departments with meetings at Canterbury Christ Church and Kent (11 September), the Highlands and Islands (18 September) and Hertfordshire (16 October).
Each Visit includes a public lecture given by a guest lecturer to which all are welcome. Further details and links for booking are below. We look forward to seeing you at one of these events.
