About Us


To deepen national appreciation of the relevance of history to understanding Ghana’s past and present; to highlight the centrality of history to the production of knowledge in general; and to reveal history’s influence in everyday life.


To strengthen the discipline of history at the university, secondary and basic levels and to inculcate an interest in history in the wider Ghanaian public. To this end, the Historical Society of Ghana sponsors research, assists in the training of historians in universities and secondary schools, offers scholarships, runs an annual conference open to the general public, and publishes journals, books, theses and documentaries.
