Get involved

Doing History in Public welcomes submissions from graduate students and early career researchers, working at any academic institution and in any field. We promote innovative, engaging new work about history, heritage and public culture and aim to connect researchers in these areas to their counterparts outside academia.

Submissions should be between 500 and 750 words and be written in clear and accessible language. They should also fall into one of the following categories:

  • Research: share something interesting you’ve discovered through your own research, research challenges you’ve encountered, or your experience of visiting an archive.
  • History and Current Affairs: bring a historical perspective to a current socio-political event, or write about the role of history and memory in modern life.
  • Bookshelf: review a recent history book, play, film or exhibition, preferably one with an unusual topic, approach or methodology.
  • Methodology: write about methodological issues relating to history writing, especially if these relate to the wider fields of heritage and public history.
  • Digital History: consider the challenges and opportunities of doing history in public through digital sources, or write about ideas on the internet and born-digital documents as sources of historical research.

If you have any questions or would like to contribute, email with your name and course, a brief outline of your proposed topic (50-100 words), and an estimated date by which you could submit.
