The History Blogging Project will be launched at an event hosted by The History Lab on Tuesday 18 January. Starting at 6pm, there will be short talks on a range of issues connected to blogging as a postgraduate historian, including 'why blog', 'finding time to blog' and 'blogging and public engagement'. There will also be a chance to guide the direction of the project and network with other historians over a glass of wine. A limited number of travel bursaries are available for postgraduates coming from outside of London.
Run by postgraduates for postgraduates, the History Blogging Project will provide a forum in which postgraduates can publicise their research, network with other historians, debate the role of blogs in academic and public engagement, and contribute to a continually developing online set of resources on blogging technology.
The website, www.historybloggingproject.org, will be launched during the event.
