Matthew Norris (Part 3 History, and our 2016/17 Humanities Student Representative) has established a national undergraduate history research organisation, the ‘British Undergraduate Historical Association’.
The BUHA runs its own journal, The British Historical Review, the first issue of which appeared a few months ago. Both the journal, and further information about the BUHA can be found on their website.
The Association will also be hosting its first conference at the University of Reading this week, Thursday 3rd November (Palmer Building G05). The programme for this can be found below.
