New Researchers

VAHS New Researchers is a sub-committee of the Voluntary Action History Society. It exists to provide networking opportunities and support for postgraduate and early career researchers working on the history of charity, activism, humanitarianism, campaigning and civil society.

The New Researchers group is undergoing a redevelopment year and is actively seeking new members to join the committee.  We are currently planning a one-day seminar for all interested postgraduates and early career researchers to be held in October 2015.  If you would like more information, please email Megan Webber at

Previously, the New Researchers have been involved in a number of workshops, seminars and conference panels as well as a ‘Shut Up and Write’ group. For more information on past events, click here.

Make plans now to attend the VAHS 6th International Conference, tentatively scheduled for July 2016, which will include New Researcher prizes. For a list of previous prize winners, click here.

For more information on the activities of VAHS New Researchers or if you are interested in getting involved, please contact the the blog editor, Megan Webber, at, and she will add you to the mailing list.
