Contribute to the Royal Historical Society’s Teaching Portal

Many of the articles on the Teaching Portal are commissioned by invitation and reflect the ongoing projects and priorities of the Royal Historical Society.

We also encourage submissions for engaging, accessible posts (of c.600-800 words) that reflect the full diversity of methodological approaches, personal perspectives, time periods and geographical focus within current historical research, teaching and professional practice.

In brief, your piece should:

  • be engagingly written for a broad non-expert audience, and free from unnecessary complicated terms and jargon;
  • be logical, clear and helpful for those looking to learn from your experience and specialism
  • include hyperlinks to websites, open access resources, blogs or academic articles;
  • contain around five suggestions for “Further Reading”;
  • avoid footnotes wherever possible;
  • include 2-3 images that are in the public domain, belong to you or have permission granted for use online.

If you would like to contribute an article to the Teaching Portal, please EMAIL US with your proposal, providing a 150-word outline of your article and details of your institutional affiliation, if applicable. Please mark your email: ‘TEACHING PORTAL PROPOSAL’.

If you have any questions about submission, please email the Society’s Academic Director:

Thank you.
