Get History Website Wins Award From Oxford University College

The annual Community Engagement and Impact Award rewards Kellogg College ”students who have demonstrated a genuine commitment to community engagement, increasing impact, promoting knowledge exchange, or widening participation.”

The college writes that the ”website brings history and historical research to as wide an audience as possible. Initially started as a study aid for secondary-school students, it has expanded to include the wider public, introducing current historiographical debate in a fun and accessible manner. As well as topic-based articles, which encourage the audience to develop their own opinions and undertake further practical and book-based research, it has increased the impact of other historians” work, by including interviews and competitions. Quizzes, facts, and ”on this day” bring the bizarre and wonderful side of history to life, inspiring engagement with history, and showing its importance in the world today.”

Get History was established in 2014 as a reaction against the ”dumbing down” of history for children. Its guiding principle is that history doesn”t have to be boring or oversimplified; it just has to be well-expressed. Complex historical ideas, concepts, and debates can and should be brought to life, because understanding history helps us to understand who we are now and why we are here: it is the story of us. This principle is carried through the site in articles, reviews, interviews with leading historians, quizzes, facts, and quotations.

Debbie Kilroy, the site”s founder, writer, and editor, has said: ”It is an immense honour to receive this award and to be recognised for the hard work involved in running the site. I think Get History has so much potential, and has so much to contribute to historical study; it”s nice that others – and particularly an Oxford college – think so too!”

A small, specialist and research-intensive postgraduate university based in the heart of London, the RCA is a high-performing institution, a radical traditionalist in a fast-paced world.

The RCA”s approach is founded on the premise that art, design, creative thinking, science, engineering and technology must all collaborate to solve today”s global challenges.

In 2018, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales became Royal Visitor of the College. The Prince of Wales succeeded His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, who was Royal Visitor for 50 years.

The RCA employs a cadre of around 1,000 professionals from around the world – spanning professors, researchers, art and design practitioners, advisers and visiting lecturers – to teach and develop students in around 30 academic programmes.

RCA students are exposed to new knowledge in a way that encourages them to experiment. Working across scientific and technical canvases and beyond set boundaries, RCA students seek to solve real-world problems.

RCA opened the Burberry Material Futures Research Group in 2018 to invent sustainable materials, transform consumer experience and advance manufacturing; and the Intelligent Mobility Design Centre, supported Hyundai Kia, to lead the research agenda at the intersection of people, mobility and technology.

The RCA runs joint programmes with Imperial College London and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
