World War I and the British and Irish Studies Intelligencer

Published: August 12, 2014

BISI-Logo.pngThis week, the North American Conference on British Studies will begin publishing the British and Irish Studies Intelligencer (BISI).  BISI, with H-Albion, will become a central forum for discussions about the state of the field, methodological approaches, teaching, reports on conferences and symposia, videos, podcasts, and editorials focused on British Studies across the disciplines.   

Our inaugural series of posts focus on the history and historiography of World War I.  Upcoming posts include

--an interview with Adam Hochschild about history, memory, and activism
--an examination the Imperial War Museum’s crowdsourced project, “The Lives of the First World War”
--a story about Wilfred Owen and the early months of WWI
--a history of Canada’s First Nations and the course of WWI

Our blogging team and editorial board are looking forward to hearing from you, and we encourage you to engage with the blog posts using the comments boxes at the bottom of the pages.

 

About BISI

As a blog, BISI will include discussions about the state of the field, methodological approaches, teaching, reports on conferences and symposia, videos, podcasts, and editorials focused on British Studies across the disciplines.  BISI will host discussion forums, and it will provide a space for scholars to share their current research in a format that is accessible to the non-specialist.  

BISI has its origins in the British Studies Intelligencer, first published by the society in 1962 (a searchable digital archive is available through IUPUI).  The new platform marks a divergence from the Intelligencer's earlier newsletter formats, and it will allow NACBS members to engage with each other more regularly.

The BISI team encourages the British Studies community to submit blog posts (and re-posts) as well as offer suggestions for special projects or themes.

If you would like to contact BISI to discuss a potential blog post, make a submission, or offer to organize an online forum, please contact us at nacbsblog@gmail.com
