Matthew Broad elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society
Matthew Broad, based in History and International Studies, has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (RHS).
Fellows are considered those who have made a significant contribution to historical scholarship through original research. Elections to the Fellowship are undertaken through a process of external peer review, after which the RHS Council considers the quality of an individual’s work and its utilisation by the broader academic community. The expected standard is research that ‘looks beyond the immediate subject of the enquiry to offer insights and findings that contribute to our understanding of broader (historical) problems and issues’.
A learned society founded by Royal Charter in 1868, the RHS works with professional historians to advance the scholarly study of the past worldwide and contribute to contemporary policy debates about the study and use of history.
