We are calling for Fringe Histories Project blog posts on the Hunter Living Histories website.
We are inviting students, alumni, and academics to use Special Collections resources and contribute blog posts on themes reflecting diversity, our marginalised communities and lost histories on the fringe of research.
Each month, we will choose two blog posts relating to the themes below. We are particularly interested in publishing work from our post-graduate students who have engaged with Special Collections resources at the University of Newcastle Library. We will also accept submissions from post-graduate students from other institutions.
Themes for 2023:
- February – Women’s History
- March – LGBTQ+ History & Society
- April – Migrant History & Society
- May – Medical Histories
- June – Environmental History & Society
- July – Celebrating NAIDOC Week
- August – Disability History
- September – History Week 2023 ‘Voices from the Past’
- October – Mental Health History
- November – Deep Histories
Submissions due COB last Friday of each month, send to firstname.lastname@example.org
