The Social History Society can now confirm that its annual conference has been cancelled due to the outbreak of coronavirus Covid-19. This follows our earlier decision to suspend bookings while the situation became clearer.
We are are working closely with Lancaster University to reconvene there in 2021. We are also exploring various options for some form of digital conference activity this July. Please do get in touch if you have suggestions.
In the days ahead, we will be contacting all those who have booked tickets to arrange a full refund of your conference fees. You will no longer see your booking details on the website, but please be assured that your details are stored safely in our database.
We also urge those of you who had been accepted onto the programme, but are not yet a member of the society, to consider membership. Your fees are translated into bursaries, prizes, grants, and allow us to maintain a community of social and cultural historians. This community will be increasingly important in the days and weeks ahead.
Most importantly, we hope that all of everyone stays safe during this period of uncertainty. Look after yourselves and those around you.
