Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

 

Dr Susan Oosthuizen, Reader in Medieval Archaeology and ICE's Academic Director for Historic Environment, has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (RHS).

Since it was founded in 1868 the RHS has become the foremost society in the UK working with professional historians and advancing the scholarly study of the past. It is a learned society with charitable status that is increasingly at the forefront of policy debates about the study of history. It works closely with the Historical Association, the body that leads on history in schools, the Institute of Historical Research, a central hub for the provision of research resources, and History UK (HE), a council of representatives of UK university history department.

Fellowships are awarded to those who have made "an original contribution to historical scholarship", normally through the authorship of a monograph, a body of scholarly work similar in scale and impact to a monograph, or the organisation of exhibitions, conferences, the editing of journals and other works of diffusion and dissemination grounded in historical scholarship.

Susan is delighted to have been elected to a Fellowship of the RHS. "It is not only a personal honour", she says, "but one that recognises the contribution to world-class scholarship in history and archaeology by academics and students across the wider higher education context of lifelong learning."
