Abstract

The Royal Historical Society published ‘Race, Ethnicity and Equality in UK History’ in 2018. This report surveyed the state of the discipline for BME staff and students in particular – finding that Undergraduate level History was overwhelmingly white in terms of students, that the numbers were even lower when it came to Postgraduate level History and that ‘History academic staff are less diverse than H&PS student cohorts, with 93.7% of History staff drawn from White backgrounds, and only 0.5% Black, 2.2% Asian and 1.6% Mixed’. This chapter considers the intellectual development of the RHS’s equalities work as it ties to the anti-racist work we can see in Britain more broadly.
