Guest Bloggers Needed: Interesting Literature
The new blog, Interesting Literature (http://interestingliterature.wordpress.com/), is looking for academics and independent scholars to contribute guest blog posts on their research.
We're looking for short pieces of 500-800 words which would summarise an individual's research into any area of literary study. In particular, we're interested in hearing from scholars, academics, or postgraduate researchers who feel that they can put across what is interesting and unusual about their research topic in a lively and engaging way. As such, we're more concerned with research summaries which are jargon-free, entertaining, and addressed to the general reader rather than to academic specialists in a particular field.
Our blog is newly launched and aims to connect with a wide network of people from both academic and non-academic backgrounds; as such, a contribution to our blog could help to bring your research to a whole new audience. Currently our posts deal with interesting information about authors and their works, unusual interpretations of classic texts, and surprising connections between authors; but we are keen to broaden our 'interestingness' remit to include information about the most exciting academic research currently being carried out into different areas of literature and culture.
Send enquiries and/or summaries of your research to O.M.Tearle@lboro.ac.uk some time before 1 May 2013 and we will happily consider featuring your research summary on our blog.
