On Wednesday 17 May, members of the Society’s Council and staff visited historians at the University of Northampton. Visits are an opportunity to meet with historians, researchers and students, and to discuss priorities, interests and concerns relating to research, teaching and the profession.
We are very grateful to all those at Northampton who made this Visit possible, especially to Dr Tim Reinke-Williams and Professor Roey Sweet (Leicester) for her guest lecture, on eighteenth-century British travellers to Spain, which concluded the Visit.
Further Society Visits to UK history departments will take place through the year, to the universities of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church, the Highlands and Islands, and Hertfordshire.
Guest lecturers taking part in forthcoming Visits are Will Pettigrew (Lancaster), Lucy Noakes (Essex), Elaine Farrell (Queen’s Belfast) and Leanne McCormick (Ulster). Details of all these RHS sponsored lectures will be added to our Events Programme in the coming months, and all are welcome to attend in-person or online.
