Call for contributors: Innovations in Teaching Eighteenth-Century History

Following the successful online workshop last year on ‘Innovations in Teaching Eighteenth-Century History’, we plan to publish an edited book on this theme. As well as developing papers from the workshop into chapters, we are seeking additional chapters for the book, so this is a further oppotunity to get involved.

The book will focus on new approaches to teaching the history of the long eighteenth century at HE level. Topics could include:

  • Digital humanities
  • Learning with primary sources
  • Decolonizing the curriculum
  • Teaching with material culture
  • Gender and sexuality in the classroom
  • Online learning and assessment
  • Pedagogy in the pandemic

Please send a title, a 200 word abstract and a short biography to by 1 July 2021. If possible, it would also be useful to know whether your chapter will require illustrations. Finished chapters will be in the region of 5000 words: these will be due next year and will be developed at an authors’ workshop.
