Upcoming Events

Historians across Boundaries with the Institute of Historical Research (IHR)

We are excited to announce a series of interactive seminars, designed to help bring researchers interested in the past together, whatever their backgrounds or particular research focus. We want to share best practice and work out how we can encourage greater collaboration.

As part of this series (in order to help you share your thoughts and continue the chat outside of the seminar sessions), we’ll be conducting regular twitter hours on a Wednesday at 8pm. Look for #HistoryHour or follow us on Twitter @HistCollab.

Family History Workshops

This series of online workshops will critically explore family history in all its forms.

Bringing together amateur and professional family historians / genealogists and academic historians, these events aim to provide a forum to examine:

  • how we might collaborate through family history
  • the ethical and methodological challenges of family history
  • how family history can change the way we think about our history and our present
  • how we might go about placing family histories in broader historical and political contexts


These workshops are organized by Julia Laite (Birkbeck, University of London), in partnership with the Raphael Samuel History Centre and Historians Collaborate. They are generously funded by the British Academy.

Registration details coming soon!
