The journal is conceived as a forum for public engagement rather than a traditionally academic project. It will evolve as its users change the shape of its activities. It is committed to exploiting all of the possibilities of digital technology.
This is a general call for contributions from members of the public, academics, curators, journalists, schools teachers, local historical societies.
We welcome views, reviews, articles, comments and think pieces. In the first instance please contact J.Champion@rhul.ac.uk with suggestions and proposals. In due course we will publish guidelines on format and presentation for these submissions.
To kick discussion off here is a short selection of offerings.
In Reviews: an engagement with Boris Johnson's recent excursions into Ancient History and Amanda Vickery reviews a small history book; in Opinions: an account of what's it's like making History for the TV and Radio, and an engagement with the current debate about Enlightenment and Religion provoked by Richard Dawkins; and in Positions: a short and provocative platform for answering the question 'What are historians for?'
