Event description

Description

Inaugurated in 2015 and offered in partnership with the Historical Association and the Institute of Historical Research’s Public History Seminar, the RHS Public History Prize celebrates work in Museums & Exhibitions, Film & TV, Radio & Podcasts, Online Resources, Public Debate & Policy, as well as work undertaken by students. The results of the RHS Public History Prize were announced on Friday 26 January 2018 and the winners can be viewed at https://royalhistsoc.org/public-history-prize-2018-winners/ .

This symposium, co-organized with the University of Birmingham and Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, showcases work from all categories and includes provocations from award winners. The afternoon will feature a workshop with Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery curators around their new gallery, ‘The Past is Now: Birmingham and the British Empire’, which has been co-curated with activists and explores the challenges of depicting the past of empire in contemporary Britain.

This symposium is free but you will need to book a place.
