We recently announced the shortlists for the 2021 RHS Whitfield and Gladstone Book Prizes. Here we introduce you to the shortlisted authors via a series of short videos, beginning with the six early career historians shortlisted for his year’s Whitfield Prize for a first book on a subject relating to British and Irish History.
In the videos, authors introduce you to their work, the ideas that shaped their research, and their shortlisted book.
We’ll follow the Whitfield videos with introductions to the eight historians shortlisted for the Gladstone Prize later this week.
Winners of the Whitfield and Gladstone Book Prizes will be announced at the RHS’s annual Awards Ceremony for Publishing, Teaching and Research — held this year online at 5.30pm on Friday 23 July. More details soon.
