University of York

22/06/2020 – 24/06/2020

The annual SHS conference is the largest gathering of social and cultural historians in the UK. Over more than four decades, our members have transformed historical research, inspired challenging work and explored the many ways in which our social worlds are made, imagined, shared and shattered.

Our 2020 conference is being hosted by the University of York. It will take place on 22-24 June.

More details will be announced when we circulate the Call for Papers later this year.

The conference will also see the official announcement of this year’s SHS Book Prize winner and prizes awarded for the best postgraduate paper. There were also opportunities to meet the editors of both our journal Cultural & Social History and our New Directions in Social and Cultural History book series with Bloomsbury.
