Journeys into Community History (... and what's next for the field?)

journeys poster
All are welcome to participate in a public event series being launched by the Oxford History Faculty’s new Community History Hub.  

We will be discussing new directions in the field of History, being pioneered by community historians and academics working in partnership. The three events will take place across Oxford, as well as later being available to view online. They are free to attend, you simply need to book your place in advance via Eventbrite.  

At our first event, Journeys into Community History (...and what's next for the field?), a panel of community-based researchers and academics will together explore the challenges and opportunities facing historians across the UK; as well as the impact of community history methodologies on research, teaching and public understandings of ‘History’ as a subject. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas with the panel during the second half of the event.

 We invite anyone interested in historical studies to join us for a rich, engaging discussion. We also welcome you to get involved with our Hub’s growing network of History researchers and students by subscribing to our mailing list.
