Regional and Local Historical Research Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

The Regional and Local Historical Research Group is committed principally to the development and promotion of research in all aspects of the regional, local and community history of North Eastern England. It aims to maintain a long-standing tradition of research expertise in this field at Teesside University and is dedicated to its further development and enhancement.

This will be achieved by raising the national and international profile of the history of the region; maintaining and continuing to build a research culture and research links; facilitating the teaching of aspects of regional and local history at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; developing Teesside University’s role in the community and disseminating the results of research to the general public through seminars, conferences and peer-reviewed publications.

By including in its remit research that examines the causes and the social and cultural consequences of deindustrialisation in the North East region, as well as the collection and preservation of community memories, the group will also contribute to the University’s wider research strategy, particularly the Grand Challenge theme of Resilient and Secure Societies.
