Historia is published twice a year in May and November by the Historical Association of South Africa (HASA). The editor-in-chief is Prof. Gerald Groenewald from the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.

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.
