The History Educators International Research Network [HEIRNET] brings together colleagues from around the world interested in History’s civilising, cultural, educational, moral, social, political and citizenship roles.

We are a small, informal friendly association that believes in history’s seminal role in educating for a democratic future that depends upon understanding the past.

This year we are holding our virtual online conference from Tuesday 31st August to Thursday 2nd September, for details see the website’s 2021 Virtual Conference section.

The HEIRNET website also:

  • promotes a new series of ONLINE HEIRNET KEYNOTEs,
  • supports the peer reviewed History Education Research Journal [HERJ]
  • has an up to date news and social media section
  • hosts webinars, workshops and publishes articles, reports, national and other curricula, programmes of study, schemes of work, lesson plans, resources
