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.
Some of our research and resources are available online at the Living Histories repository and Hunter Living Histories.
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 – History Week (2023 theme TBA)
- September – Disability History
- October – Mental Health History
- November – Deep Histories
You can view past contributions to the Fringe Histories project here and find last year’s contributions here.
Submissions due COB last Friday of each month, send to firstname.lastname@example.org
