Welcome to the Royal Historical Society’s new blog series!
- Do you work on race and its relationship to history, broadly defined?
- Have you tackled issues related to race within the classroom, at university, in the museum?
- And are you looking for a way to reflect upon your experiences, and analyse and share your thoughts?
‘Writing Race’ is keen to amplify your voice. We recognise that more formal means of publishing and disseminating race-related work takes time, and is not for everyone. We are looking for posts that are about 1,000 words in length, and can offer you advice on how to sharpen your writing for our blog series. And we will promote your posts through our social media channels, ensuring your thoughts get the reach they deserve.
If you’d like to write for the series, contact the blog series editor, Dr Diya Gupta, with your pitches.
