At 17.00 BST on Friday 23 July we’ll be announcing the winners of the 2021 RHS Awards for Research, Publishing and Teaching in History — together with the annual prizes for early career historians awarded by the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), University of London.

At the same time, we’ll also announce the recipients of the joint RHS / IHR Centenary and Marshall Fellowships, 2021-22 for doctoral research in History.


17.00 BST: we’ll release a pre-recorded Awards Ceremony, on video, via Twitter and the RHS website — with your host Dr Andrew Smith: @RoyalHistSoc


17.30 BST: we’ll publish a blog, here on ‘Historical Transactions’, with full details of 2021 winners and runners-up, recognised this year by the RHS and IHR.


The annual RHS Awards are an opportunity for the Society, and wider historical community, to recognise and celebrate just some of the recent achievements and hard work of historians in research, writing and teaching in the UK in 2020-21.
