As part of the 150th anniversary of  the Transactions of the Royal Historical Society its new Editors, Dr Harshan Kumarasingham  and Dr Kate Smith, are  pleased to announce that the Journal will be funding two academic workshops — to the sum of up to £1000 per event — to bring together scholars to facilitate debate, and lead to publication of proceedings as article/s in a future issue of Transactions of the Royal Historical Society.  This call is open and not restricted by historical subject or approach and we encourage workshop proposals that aid in the developing of ideas for a discussion, review, or roundtable piece.

In terms of submission this could take the form of a single article-length piece or shorter contributions from a limited number of participants. The structure of the piece, and how it can include contributions from several different authors, is open for discussion and development and should be addressed in the proposal.

The deadline is 30 September 2022 and further information can be found here including the online portal for proposal applications:


The Journal also welcomes article submissions at any time dealing with any geographical area from the early middle ages to the very recent past. Editors are interested in articles that cover entirely new ground, thematically or methodologically, as well as those that engage critically on established themes in existing literatures.
