Call for Bloggers: History of Sexuality Blog
Co-Editors: Justin Bengry (Birkbeck and McGill) and Julia Laite (Birkbeck)
We are currently looking for regular contributors to a History of Sexuality Blog to launch this autumn and hosted by the Raphael Samuel History Centre. Our goal is to create a blog that is intellectually engaged, accessible, timely, relevant and fun.
We are looking for bloggers to write on the widest range of regions, periods, and themes. Posts would only be limited by the interests and specializations of our contributors and we envision the blog including a range of discussions of heterosexuality, homosexualty, queer experiences, genders, trans issues, sex work, the body, migration, labour, capitalism, policy, media, emotions, aesthetics and the list goes on. In particular we would encourage participation from contributors with knowledge of the pre-modern period and the global south.
In addition to specifically historical posts, we would welcome posts on subjects of topical interest and current relevance. Bloggers might be informed by contemporary issues, historicize current events, or reflect on seminars, books and conferences. Posts could also be lighter, discussing interesting or unusual sources and historical experiences. We would, however, ask bloggers in the first instance to cover particular niches to maintain consistent coverage of multiple themes. Ideally each blogger would contribute a minimum of one
scheduled post per month, but would not be limited by this if interested in posting something that was particularly timely.
If you are interested in contributing to the upcoming History of Sexuality Blog, please contact Justin Bengry with your areas of interest.
