The Raphael Samuel History Centre
The Raphael Samuel History Centre is a research and educational centre devoted to encouraging the widest possible participation in historical research and debate.
The RSHC has a large programme of research, teaching, and public events. The Raphael Samuel History Centre is a four-way partnership between the University of East London (UEL), Birkbeck, University of London, Queen Mary, University of London and the Bishopsgate Institute.
The Raphael Samuel History Centre was founded in 1995 to promote research into the modern history of East London. Since then its remit has broadened to London history in general and especially the history of the Thames Gateway; comparative metropolitan histories; memory studies; and psychoanalytic approaches to history. The Centre is interdisciplinary in approach, combining the interests of social and cultural historians with those of researchers in adjacent disciplines, especially cultural and political studies, English literature, and human geography.
