Digital research, publishing and services are central to the IHR. Our work focuses on five key areas:
- Resources: for historical research, including British History Online and the Bibliography of British and Irish History.
- Research: digital history and digital methods with historians, archivists and librarians. Recent projects include history and big data, born-digital data and web ontologies.
- Publishing: History of Parliament and the Humanities Digital Library.
- Communication: Reviews in History and History Online, together with the IHR website.
- Teaching and training: introductions to digital humanities for graduate students.
IHR Digital brings together historians, editors, bibliographers, publishers, web designers and developers. Who we are.
Featured resource: London's Women Historians
This project emerged from the conference ‘London’s women historians: a celebration and a conversation’ held at the Institute of Historical Research, University of London (IHR). The day ended with the launch of a portrait exhibition of 20 London women historians, now reproduced in this online exhibition.
How to study:
Urban History using British History Online
British History Online contains an extensive range of sources for urban history from the early medieval period to the 20th century, with a particularly rich array of source material for the history of London, which during this period grew into one of the world’s largest metropolises.
