HISTORY ACTS Online – historyacts.org @HistoryActs #historyacts

HISTORY ACTS workshops are led by activists, who give a short talk or presentation about their work. A historianor historians working on a relevant topic will then respond, before opening it up to group discussion.

HISTORY ACTS is a radical history forum, affiliated to the Raphael Samuel Centre, and based at the Institute of Historical Research.

We bring together radical and left-wing historians and contemporary activists. We seek new ways to engage as academics with contemporary struggles, to learn from activists, and to see how we can use
what expertise and institutional resources we have to provide active solidarity.

Sessions are free and open to any historian, any history student, or anyone interested in how history can work for social and political change.
