Dear H-SHGAPE subscribers

The SHAGPE blog is looking to publish a series of posts--500 words or less--to help capture the lived experience of Americans during the 1918 Flu Pandemic. Images, photo essays, songs, poems, or other media are all welcome. We are particularly interested in how the pandemic shows up in your research, especially if your research topic isn't specifically on the flu itself. If you have encountered sources that shed light on the everyday experience of 1918, or if you're starting to explore at your sources from a new perspective, you can send a statement of interest or blog pitch to Laura Crossley at Please send these by May 30th.
