About RAHS Events
The Royal Australian Historical Society has an established tradition of delivering a diverse Calendar of Events throughout the year, helping make history accessible to all. This program includes history lectures, historical skills-based workshops, regional history seminars, historical tours and book launches.
In recent years a number of RAHS event initiatives have been introduced:
- The RAHS Calendar of Events is overseen by a Committee of the Council
- Since 2012, some history lectures at History House have been recorded and are available to view and listen as RAHS Podcasts.
- In 2013 we introduced a new series History is Hot, where postgraduate students are given an opportunity to deliver a history talk at History House.
- The RAHS History Webinar Series commenced in 2014, providing an opportunity for both local and regional members and friends to experience skills-based presentations from the comfort of their own homes.
The annual Royal Australian Historical Society Conference is a highlight of the Society’s activities. It provides an opportunity for the RAHS and its Affiliated Societies to network at a history conference dedicated to promoting local and community history and to showcase the historical research of individuals and societies.
