Institute of Historical Research (IHR)
The Institute of Historical Research was founded in 1921 and is one of nine institutes that comprise the University of London's School of Advanced Study. The Institute is dedicated to training the next generation of historians, and to producing and facilitating ambitious, innovative historical research.
The Institute helps foster public understanding of history and its social, cultural, and economic importance, advocating for the long-term future of the discipline and supporting its growth and development. It offers a wide range of services both onsite and remotely that facilitate excellence in historical research, teaching and scholarship in the UK, through the Institute's library, events programmes, fellowships, training and publications.
The Institute is a leading centre for the creation of digital resources for historians, and promotes the study of people and locality through the Centre for the History of People, Place and Community.
