Join us in building the Active History project! ActiveHistory.ca invites propositions for blog posts, thematic series, and other contributions that highlight new research and histories that matter today. We welcome proposals from all historians, whether they work in institutions or in the community, who would like to expand the audience for their work while presenting it in an accessible format. We are particularly interested in recruiting for the following two roles.
What histories matter in 2022? Work with fellow historians and the ActiveHistory.ca editorial collective to present a series of posts around a specific theme. Previous series have explored topics including refugee reception, the climate emergency, and history teaching. Proposals for thematic series should include a short bio, a title and one-paragraph statement of the theme and format of the series (texts, artwork with commentary, etc.) and a list of contributors.
Share your work and ideas regularly with our audience of historians, educators, and interested members of the wider public. Regular contributors commit to work with the editorial collective to publish four blog posts (typically accessible, jargon-free texts of 800-1500 words) over the course of a year. Proposals should include a short bio, a one-paragraph description of the history work you do, as well as some ideas for potential posts.
Thanks to the generosity of the site’s readers and allies across Canada, we are pleased to be able to offer honoraria to early-career historians interested in taking on one of these two roles. Series editors will receive $500 and a budget of up to $500 to pay series contributors (for ex. 4 posts at $125 each). Regular contributors will receive $500 per year.
