Basic information

Historia is published twice a year in July and December, except during the 2020 when the journal only published one issue, due to the pandemic

The editor is Prof. Julie Parle, 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 (HASA) 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.
