Dear H-SHGAPE Subscribers,

Happy Autumn! I'm writing to share some exciting news, the SHGAPE Blog has migrated to a new site -- Please take a moment if you can to admire it! Thank you to my co-editor, Laura Crossley, for handling much of the transition this summer. We have also welcomed four new people to the SHGAPE Blog team: Mark Gibb and James Breen have both cycled on as website editors and helped with the transition; Crystal Brandenburgh is our newest blog editor; and Kymberly Macewan is now our Minding the GAPE editor. We're excited to continue the work of the blog, which just recently turned three years old! Take a stroll down memory lane with us and check out our first ever post by J. Martin Vest, "On Nippers, Nipper-Napping, and the New York Public Library."

On that note, we are issuing a general Call for Submissions. The Blog is always welcome to scholars from all walks of life, from both beginning and established scholars, and from anyone inside or outside the academy. If you have a digital project or anything beyond the traditional written blog post, we are happy to consider it! One of our favorite posts was the graphic essay by Coyote Shook, "Flu in the Artic". 

If you're interested, please send a short pitch to me at by November 1st. We typically publish pieces between 750-1000 words. We encourage you to review our Style Guide before submitting.
