HistorySoc

HistorySoc

HistorySoc is the largest Humanities society at Cardiff University!

With regular socials such as the legendary Toga Toga, a course themed social which welcomes around 200 students each year, there is something for everyone in our society! Each year, we run a trip to a destination chosen by our members (but places are limited so be sure to get your tickets as soon as they go on sale)! In previous years we have travelled to Budapest and Prague with the 2019 trip being to Berlin. The tickets for the 2019 trip are now on sale - get them before they go!

This year we also plan to organise a series of guest lectures and talks. This academic year we welcomed historian Martin Johnes in November 2018 - whose talk on the 'History of Christmas in Modern Britain' was very popular and extremely interesting! In January 2019, we are very proud to be hosting a Holocaust survivor talk along with Jewish Society here at Cardiff University. The talk is sure to be one of the highlights of our Spring semester events!

Other events that members can get involved range from society-led cinema trips to bar crawls, so we really try and put on something for everyone! We also run a series of post-graduate focused events, that are organised through our Post-graduate Officer! And of course, we run the annual 'History Ball' which will take place on the 8th May 2019 at the fantastic venue of the National Museum in Cardiff! Keep track of all these events and much more on our social media pages!

So whether you study History or not, HistorySoc is an awesome way to meet people and make the most of your time at Cardiff, as both alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials are an important part of HistorySoc. If ever you need to ask or suggest anything - please feel free to get in touch with any of the fabulous HistorySoc Committee, who are always more than happy to speak to you!

 

Y Gymdeithas Hanes yw’r gymdeithas dyniaethau fwyaf ym Mhrifysgol Caerdydd!

 

Gyda nosweithiau cymdeithasu rheolaidd fel y legendary Toga Toga, sef noson cwrs sy’n croesawu tua 200 o myfyrwyr pob blwyddyn, mae yna rhywbeth i bawb yn ein cymdeithas! Pob blwyddyn, rydym yn rhedeg trip i wlad o ddewis aelodau’r gymdeithas (ond mae safleuoedd yn brin, fellu prynnwch eich tocynnau yn syth!) Yn y blynyddoedd diwaethaf da ni wedi mynd i Berlin a Budapest, a mae’r trip 2018 am fod i Prague.
