The Social History Society, Economic History Society, and History UK are launching a new funding scheme to support Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) history. The scheme has been created in recognition of the under-representation, structural inequalities and racism afflicting UK Higher Education Institutions. We are committing £2,000 a year for three years in the first instance.
Members of the Economic History Society are invited to contact Council members with suggestions for the office of Honorary Treasurer, which will become vacant at the Annual General Meeting on Saturday, 18 2020 April at St Catherine's College, Oxford.
Deadline for nominations to Council: 28 June 2019.
The Economic History Society offers 12 part-funded places on an intensive residential course designed to raise the quality and analytical rigour of doctoral dissertations in economic and social history; to improve the communication skills of postgraduates; to widen their approach to their subjects; and to encourage them to form networks with established scholars and fellow students in their areas of expertise.
For over 260 years the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce) has been relentless in its pursuit of social progress. Our mission, 21st century enlightenment, pays tribute to our founders and the pioneering spirit which inspired them. Economic History Society members can take advantage of a fast-track application and a reduced joining fee to join the RSA Fellowship, a global network of like-minded people united by a shared set of values. Previous RSA Fellows include Karl Marx and Adam Smith, who was a member when he published The Wealth of Nations. Fellows of the RSA have access to the brightest new ideas, innovative projects, a diverse network of like-minded people, and a platform for social change. If you are interested in finding out more contact Adam Timmins, Head of Fellowship Development.
To encourage EHS members to apply for fellowship of the RSA, the RSA is waiving its one-off charge of £75.00 and will fast-track-applications. Interested members should contact Adam Timmins.
