IHR seeks Professor in the History of People, Place and Community

The Institute of Historical Research (IHR) is seeking a senior academic leader to become Professor in the History of People, Place and Community and the founding Director of a new research centre, part of a major transformation taking place at the IHR that will culminate in the celebration of the Institute’s centenary in 2021.

This new research centre will draw upon the existing expertise and interests of the staff and the respective constituencies of the Centre for Metropolitan History (CMH) and the Victoria County History (VCH) Central Office and develop research, training and public engagement activities that demonstrate the scholarly value of the history of people, place and community.

Join the IHR’s Suffrage Bloomsbury Walking Tour

On Saturday 22 September, Dr Matthew Ingleby (QMUL) will lead a walking tour of Bloomsbury. The tour explores Bloomsbury’s extensive historical association with women’s suffrage, as well as other campaigns for the advancement of democracy.
