One of the key aims in creating this new web space for postgraduate students studying History at the University of Hull was establishing a student-written blog. The aim of the blog is to showcase the fantastic research being undertaken, explore the diverse methodologies being used and to celebrate the achievements and experiences of the students. This means we would like to offer the opportunity to all current MA, MRes and PhD students as well as postgraduate alumni of History to write a post for the blog. Writing for the blog is not only interesting for the other postgraduate students at Hull, but also is great to publicise the work you are doing and increase your online presence, which is becoming more and more important in the world of academia.
We are looking for posts of approximately 700 to 1000 words in length, on any of the following aspects of research:
- Introduction to your topic/research
- Introduction to your research methodologies, and any problems you may have come across or any advice you can share
- Highlighting specific achievements, such as a report from a research trip, placement, conferences or similar
We are hoping to publish blog posts at least fortnightly, but even more would be brilliant, so there is plenty of opportunity to get involved across the year.
If you would like to send something in, or would like to ask any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We really look forward to publishing your posts on the website and celebrating the great research taking place at Hull!
