The RHS, in partnership with the Public History Seminar at the IHR, is pleased to announce a new prize in public history. This prize is intended to promote the field of public history by recognising work that enhances public understanding of the place of the past in today’s social, political and cultural life. The Public History Seminar was set up in 2012 to provide a forum for historians of all kinds – academics, students, professional practitioners and the interested public – to discuss history’s many roles in public life today.
The judging panel comprises Professor Mary Beard (Cambridge); Dr. Alix Green (Hertfordshire); Professor Aled Jones (National Library of Wales) and Professor John Tosh (Roehampton). It is chaired by Professor Ludmilla Jordanova (Durham).
Prizes will be judged in several categories:
Museums & Exhibitions
Print publications for general audiences
