In our first summer digest we’re launching our shiny new logo which you can see above! We hope you love it as much as we do, many thanks to Lucie Whitmore for working your magic for us.
With the switch to our summer schedule we’ve moved to fortnightly digests and blogs so our latest blog post is last week’s from Dr Darren Layne. Darren’s excellent blog discussed his work in the digital humanities, you can read it here. Darren’s post discusses the people involved in the 1745 Jacobite Rising, particularly apt as we count down the days until the National Museum of Scotland’s new Jacobite exhibition opens (see below). If you’d like to contribute a post about what you do in Scottish history please get in touch.
Our Scottish History Network School Essay Prize, aimed at Scottish school students doing Higher and Advanced Higher History is ongoing. There are some great prizes offers available, thanks to Historic Environment Scotland, History Scotland and Blackwell’s Bookstore. This is a great opportunity for any students thinking about continuing with history at university so spread the word.
As always, if we have missed anything, or you have something you’d like us to include in the future, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Twitter @ScotHistNetwork or via our Facebook page.
