The Social History Society will be hosting a series of online events at the end of June 2020 (dates TBC) to celebrate and enhance our community of scholarship.

The events will include video-conferencing panels based around our eight conference strands, a plenary talk by Professor Jo Fox, Director of the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), and virtual awards for our annual prizes.

We are currently looking for speakers to give ten minute presentations on work in progress as part of the panels. This could be an opportunity to present on a particular source, a methodological quandary, a line of argument, a historiographical revelation, or a challenge encountered while researching in the midst of a pandemic.

This opportunity is open to all members of the society If you would like to present in one of the panels please get in touch with us using the email socialhistorysoc@gmail.com, briefly setting out the area of your research and the specific topic that you would like to talk about (a few bullet points will do).

First preference has been given to those due to speak at our annual conference, and this opportunity is now being broaden out. If you are not yet a member of the society, check out the benefits of membership page.

Offers to help and chair will also be gratefully received.

Our annual conference has been cancelled, but our community of scholarship remains as important as ever.
