BSHM is a friendly, welcoming society and is open to all. We are a charity administered solely by volunteers who bring an impressive wealth of experience from academia and industry. BSHM members encompass a variety of people from diverse backgrounds: researchers, teachers, students, historians, mathematicians, scientists, engineers and some with a general interest in cultural history. About a third of our members are based outside the UK, predominantly north America and continental Europe.
Members of BSHM benefit from reduced admission to most of our events, and receive the BJHM Journal, as well as regular emails detailing forthcoming events of interest (including non-BSHM events). The Journal is also available on-line to BSHM members (upon request). On-line access provides our full back catalogue going back to 1986. To activate your online access, follow the instructions in this announcement .
Members may subscribe to the journal Historia Mathematica for the special rate of £40 for 2024 (note this price is adjusted from previous years to take into account the changed GBP-USD exchange rate). Members may also join the Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Mathematics (CSHPM/SCHPM), for an additional £12. If you wish to take up either or both of these options, please add them to your payment cart. If you prefer, fill in the printed form https://www.bshm.ac.uk/sites/default/files/bshm_membership_form_2022.pdf and post this to us with your payment.
If you want to pay annually by direct debit and thus take advantage of the resulting yearly price reductions (Ordinary membership £31, Concessionary membership £18) please fill in the appropriate form and post it to us. https://www.bshm.ac.uk/sites/default/files/directdebitgiftaid_2.pdf .
