Midland History is the principal journal covering the history of the English midlands. First produced in 1971, the journal is published by an editorial board of scholars who write on the midlands, operating under the auspices of the University of Birmingham. Its aim is to publish scholarly work on the counties of Bedfordshire, Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Rutland, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. It is a refereed journal which prints articles on midlands topics: from professional and amateur historians alike, locally based and from overseas. The aim of the journal is to stimulate and encourage serious scholarly work on the history of the midlands from Roman times to the twenty-first century. Articles treat the history of particular localities and examine historical issues connected with the region, setting these in a broader context and drawing comparisons with other areas. As well as producing the journal, the Midland History board supports a biennial conference, offers an annual essay prize for scholars publishing for the first time, and provides bursaries to support postgraduate work.
