Organisation and management

Jon Nichol and Hilary Cooper, with Michael Mitchell organize the annual HEIRNET conferences, supported by a conference committee of past, current and future conference hosts.

With the launching of the permanent HEIRNET website we aim to recruit a team of colleagues who will have a similar role in its running to members of a committee that oversees a professional journal with an oversight of different areas.

Three editors, Arthur Chapman, Hilary Cooper and Jon Nichol plus the UCL IOE press managing editor and an Editorial Board run the History Education Research Journal, for details see the History Education Research Journal section of the website.

Annual Conference Committee

HEIRNET responds in particular to the advice of its conference committee, see table below, making annual changes to reflect the interests of colleagues and the evolving nature of and challenges to history education. Two significant such 2018 changes are the launch of the History Education Research Journal, HERJ, whose publisher is the University College London Institute of Education [UCL IOE] and a permanent HEIRNET website.
