The annual Social History Society Conference is the largest gathering of social and cultural historians in the UK.  Over more than four decades, our members have transformed historical research, inspired challenging work and explored the many ways in which our social worlds are made, imagined, shared and shattered.

The next SHS conference will be hosted by Keele University on 11-13 June 2018. It will feature a special plenary roundtable on History & Diversity with Dr Jonathan Saha and others, as well as a keynote lecture from Professor Keith Wrighton of Yale University.

Sessions will be themed around our eight conference strands:

  • Social Action, Social Justice & Humanitarianism
  • Diversity, Minorities & "Others"
  • Self, Senses & Emotions
  • Global, Local & Transnational
  • Politics, Policy & Citizenship
  • Deviance, Inclusion & Exclusion
  • Life Cycles, Families & Communities
  • Economies, Cultures & Consumption

The conference will also see the first SHS Book Prize awarded, as well as the winners announced for the best postgraduate paper and poster. There will be opportunities to meet the editors of both our journal Cultural & Social History and our New Directions in Social and Cultural History book series with Bloomsbury.
