The History Blogging Project

By Sarah Davenport, on 11 January 2011

We have had this launch event notice forwarded to us by Yolana Pringle from the University of Oxford. This event is run by postgraduates for postgraduates, so it may be of interest to many of you. Details follow below.

The History Blogging Project will be launched at an event hosted by The History Lab on Tuesday 18 January. Starting at 6pm, there will be short talks on a range of issues connected to blogging as a postgraduate historian, including ‘why blog’, ‘finding time to blog’ and ‘blogging and public engagement’. There will also be a chance to guide the direction of the project and network with other historians over a glass of wine. A limited number of travel bursaries are available for postgraduates coming from outside of London.

Run by postgraduates for postgraduates, the History Blogging Project will provide a forum in which postgraduates can publicise their research, network with other historians, debate the role of blogs in academic and public engagement, and contribute to a continually developing online set of resources on blogging technology.

The website will be launched during the event.

Launch event details:
Start time: 6pm
