New Histories is an online history magazine led by students at The University of Sheffield but also under the remit of its Department of History.
Since its creation in 2009, it has aimed to make written history more accessible to a wider audience; it is not just limited to those affiliated with the University. Our writers aim to write articles in a semi-informal style and, whilst obviously research is encouraged, articles are not simply shortened academic essays. We have covered a wide range of issue topics during the last four years including ‘Youth’, ‘Festivals and Celebrations’ and ‘Days That Shook The World’. Writers contribute articles relating to many countries and time periods so there really is something for everyone to write about and indeed read about in every issue.
To enable this variety, we also have students who are studying dual degrees in history and another subject write for us as well as some who may not be studying history but who write about issues relevant to their studies. In the past, contributions have come from undergraduates and postgraduates and even those from outside The University of Sheffield on occasion.
In the 2015/16 academic year, the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine is Nathaniel Robinson. He has had previous experience of writing for the magazine and has extensive editorial experience. We always welcome any offers to write for us and we are also looking for editors who will edit articles before they are given to us to put the magazine together. If you are interested in doing this or just want to find out more, then please contact us in one of the ways listed below. We look forward to hearing from you!
