U.S. Intellectual History Blog

Call For USIH Contributors: This Means You!

Dear USIH Readers,

We would like to expand our pool of contributors. Are you intrigued? If so, are you committed to thinking and writing about U.S. intellectual history topics? Do you have ideas for short or long posts? Are you studying the history of science, education, philosophy, ideas, culture, literature, math, etc. at the graduate level?

If your answer to these questions is yes, then send a note with your c.v and brief statement of interest to timothy.n.lacy – at – gmail.com (or to any other current contributor listed to the right). The USIH team will evaluate your application and get back to you within a few days.

Here’s what you’ll be getting into: Our daily readership fluctuates quite a bit—from a high of 50 or so to as low as 10 per day on the weekends. But USIH readers seem to be regular and come from every corner of the globe. In scanning the last 100 visitors before posting this note, we had representatives from every continent except Antarctica and South America. Of course having more regular contributors will help expand our readership. Our goal is to put up a new post at least every other day. Since each contributor’s energy and time varies by semester, having a larger pool increases our chances of regular postings. You’ll be a part of a team.

Finally, our view of the historian’s home is broad—we understand that professional enthusiasts and practitioners reside in places outside of academic history departments. We try to keep our assumptions to a minimum.
