After the History Subject Centre

Writing about web page

The History Subject Centre will officially close on 31st October, although effectively most activities will cease by the end of July. Sarah Richardson has written a briefing report, After the History Subject Centre, which outlines the support that will be available for HE History once the subject centre has closed. There are also details of activities and services the History community have found most valuable and recommendations on how these may be continued in the future.

Please join in the conversation!

King James in the Curriculum: Biblical Literacy in 2011

King James in the Curriculum: Biblical Literacy in 2011 (Thursday 26th - Sunday 29th May 2011, Sheffield)

This event is part of the celebrations of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible being organised by the 2011 Trust ( 

A joint venture between Sheffield University Department of Biblical Studies and Sheffield Cathedral; this conference will explore how contemporary students can be made aware of the nature and impact of the King James Version of the Bible on the intellectual history of any subject discussed or written about in English from the 17th century onwards.

Professor Hugh Pyper from Sheffield's Biblical Studies would like to involve disciplines other than Theology and Religious Studies in exploring some of the following: what do students in other disciplines know/need to know about the KJV? Who teaches them?  What resources do they have to do the teaching?  How can specialists in biblical studies be most helpful? 

The aim is to involve people across disciplines who would be interested in creating some common resources that could be made available to help students grasp the significance of the KJV or the English Bible more generally in their field of study, and to draw on the resources of biblical scholars around the country.  Resources would be prepared over this next year, and include the conference.  Frank Field MP and Carol Ann Duffy have already agreed to be part of the event.

If you would like to contribute to the development of teaching material, or would be interested in being part of the discussions at the Sheffield event, please contact Hugh Pyper at :

British Historical Statistics Project launched

Writing about web page

The British Historical Statistics project will be launched at the Economic History Society Annual Conference, University of Durham, 27 March 2010. The project is led by three general editors: 

  • Roger Middleton (Bristol): late nineteenth-twenty first century, macroeconomic history, public finance
  • Nigel Goose (Hertfordshire): medieval-early modern
  • Michael Turner (Hull): eighteenth-nineteenth century, agrarian and beyond

This project will provide new and substantially revised and repurposed editions of British Historical Statistics which were first edited by Mitchell and Deane in 1962. The editions will cover the medieval period to the contemporary world and take advantage of the ongoing expansion of the statistical knowledge of the past. The expansion of fields of history that utilise statistical data and the provision of large (if disparate) sets of online data mean that such an initiative is timely and important.

As well as providing data for research projects, the new editions will also have materials for History students and aims to provide them with the numeracy skills they need for their studies and for employment post graduation.

The general editors are keen to receive feedback on the project.

Launch of HumBox – repository for Humanities teaching resources

Writing about web page

HumBox - a new repository to share, store, manage and repurpose teaching materials from across the Humanities was launched today at the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Sheffield.

The repository has been developed by a partnership of four subject centres: English, History, LLAS and PRS and eleven institutional partners. It is funded by JISC and the HEA.

HumBox already contains over 1000 resources all uploaded using Creative Commons licences. Resources range from simple handouts to more complex learning objects as well as audio and video resources. The repository includes a simple commenting function so that users can leave feedback on the resources. Users have a profile page to promote their own research and teaching. They can set up collections of related resources and include descriptions to ensure that they are more usable for teaching.

HumBox has been closed during the development phase of the project but is now open to all. So please get sharing!
