Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to an exciting, new collaborative blog, AgeofRevolutions.com, that seeks to explore the concept and occurrence of “revolution.”  

In line, as it happens, with David A. Bell's recent call for a renewal in the comparative study of revolutions (http://blog.historians.org/2015/12/comparative-study-of-revolutions), our site encourages scholars across disciplines to share and compare their work on revolutionary themes.  Already, we have posts that explore some aspect of the French Revolution, the Haitian Revolution, the Glorious Revolution, the Darwinian Revolution, among others.

Scholars, including advanced PhD candidates, whose work engages with revolution in any way are invited to submit post proposals that explore a revolutionary event/moment (whether political, scientific, cultural, sexual, consumer, etc.), revolutionary groups or individuals, the idea or concept of revolution, or the use of the term "revolution" in the past and/or today. We ask that articles be kept to 600-1000 words, including sources and recommended readings. Contributors are also asked to submit at least one relevant image. If you are interested in contributing, please submit your proposal to http://ageofrevolutions.com/submissions/ or email one of the editors below.

If you have an interest in revolutionary studies, we invite you to follow us at www.AgeofRevolutions.com, and on Twitter @historioBLOG.

With best wishes,
