About Society

The Indian History and Culture Society, now known as ‘The History and Culture Society’ was founded in 1977 in National Museum, New Delhi to provide a forum and common platform to historians and scholars to express their views and thoughts freely and fearlessly. There is a key need for interchange of ideas on several important issues for which it is hoped the Society provides an opportunity through workshops, seminars, memorial and special lectures and publication of an annual journal called ‘History Today’ and other publications on important events in history. The essential matter of history is not what happened but what people thought and said about it.
