“What I do in Scottish History”

To celebrate our first birthday we here at the Scottish History Network have decided to launch a weekly blog series celebrating the varied work that people in academia, museum, heritage and tourism sectors, libraries and archives, historical societies, schools, family history groups, and many more do that relates, in some way, to Scottish History.

Posts can focus on any aspect of your work: whether a new project you are embarking on, an older project that you would like to reflect upon, the teaching of Scottish history at any level, public history/engagement, conservation and/or heritage work, etc. If you have an idea for a post but aren’t sure if it will fit within the remit please get in touch and we can discuss your idea.

Posts should be between 500 and 1000 words and written for a general audience. We encourage you to include images with your post but please be aware of copyright and distribution rights. Posts are intended to provide an introduction to readers on various aspects of Scottish history and how it is used so that useful connections can be made and interest fostered.

We welcome contributions from anyone whose work or study (be it full-time, part-time or voluntary) is related to Scottish history in any way. Our aim is to showcase the exciting and varied ways that Scottish history is used by practitioners across the country and, indeed, the world.

If you would be interested in writing a post for us please get in touch!


Publication of blog posts on our website remains at the discretion of the Committee at all times, and we reserve the right to reject or edit posts to ensure their suitability for our audience.
