History Society



Queen Mary History Society 2023-24


Welcome to Queen Mary History Society!

QMUL's History Society is open for anybody with an interest in history, irrespective of period or topic - it doesn't matter if you don't study history, or if you're an undergradutate, postgraduate, alumni or staff! Over the next year we aim to provide a platform to discuss a whole range of historical topics from a whole host of cultures and perspectives (as well as letting you all let off some steam from studying hard through our social events!), so we really do have something for everybody. We also provide a great framework to befriend students in different years, as well as gain careers insight range of options avaliable to historians after graduation.

What sort of events can I expect?

As part of our aim to provide a space for everybody, we're putting on a super wide range of events for our members this year! Most are free for paid members, whereas some incur a subsidised cost - we really do have something for all budgets and interests! Also to champion our mission of inclusivity, a number of the events we host will be alcohol free events, and an increase in events that are faith related.

Some examples of events we aim to hold this year include:

  • Museum trips
  • Trip abroad
  • Welcome Picnic
  • History Ball
  • Diwali/Holi/Eid/Christmas/Bonfire/Halloween related events
  • Staff vs student quizzes
  • Film screenings and talks
  • Pub crawls and club nights
  • Afternoon teas and catch-up
  • Industry talks
  • Academic panels and discussions
  • General drop-ins
  • Themed history events
