Dear H-SHGAPE Subscribers

The editors of the SHGAPE Blog would first like to thank all our contributors to our first blog series on the 1918 Influenza (our final essay will soon be posted, stay tuned!) and to all of you who read them & shared them out on social media. I would also like to thank all of our Blog editors, who you can meet here.  

In honor of the upcoming 2020 election, we're launching a new series called "Voting in the GAPE" that we will publish through the end of 2020. If you have done any research related to voting, voting rights, electioneering, or anthing related to voting in the Gilded Age & Progressive Era (1865-1920s), we want to publish your work! Submissions are not limited to essays -- we are happy to recieve graphic essays, videos, or other non-traditional formats. 

If you're interested, please send a short proposal to by October 7th. We are hoping to start receiving the essays by late October & begin publishing in early November. We typically publish pieces between 750-1000 words. We encourage you to read our Blog style guide before submitting.
