About Us

Historical Perspectives is an established history society run by and for postgraduates studying at universities throughout the United Kingdom.

Our main activities during the academic year include the hosting of a monthly seminar series which covers a range of history topics including economic, social, cultural, medieval, modern, and medical history.

We also hold a two day conference in May/June of each year. The theme for each conference is broadly themed in attempt to facilitate a wide range of postgraduate students and their research interests.

Details of next year’s conference are available here.

Though primarily a history society, we are interested in any research that examines issues through an historical lens.
