About the SOAS History Blog

The HRP Department of SOAS is launching a new digital platform and we're inviting you to contribute! It is being built as a space where any SOAS student or staff member interested in the broad subject of 'history' is welcome to contribute articles, events, and profile-pieces. 

Who will read this blog?

It is our hope that this blog will have two broad audiences: 1) the SOAS community, and 2) the general public who are searching examples of 'what history at SOAS looks like'. 

What will be on this blog?

Some ideas include:

  • Student and Staff profiles

  • 'Finds in the Archives' 

  • Student Articles 

  • Book Reports 

  • 'Fieldwork News' 

  • Community News 

  • Calendar and event reports around the SOAS community

Who staffs this?

The day-to-day maintenance of the blog will be run by students Haritha Balasubramaniyan (HRP Undergrad, History Society Committee Member) and Ellan A. Lincoln-Hyde (HRP Doctoral Researcher, HRP Student Rep). Oversight of content and editing will be co-ordinated by Dr Andrea Janku.

At the moment we are inviting ideas for content and structure from any one interested - so come join on the 4th of February at 5:30 PM (GMT)! For now,  here’s the link to joining our Whatsapp group - https://chat.whatsapp.com/E2mnAM2xRRR2OsGPJbZ2vP
