Historia is published twice a year in May and November by the Historical Association of South Africa (HASA). The editor is Professor Johan Wassermann, from the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
Historia publishes articles on aspects of the history and historiography of the Southern African region. The journal encourages critical engagement of historians with one another, but also between historians and scholars from other disciplines that are interested in grappling with the past, or the meaning of change in their areas of expertise.
The Historical Association of South Africa (HGSA) was officially established on 11 February 1956 in the City Hall in Pretoria. The first issue of its journal, Historia, was published in June 1956. The objective with Historia was to present historical themes to the broader public and the academic community and to further the interests of historical research.
Its abbreviated key title is Historia., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
