New Medievalist Blog: humanities researcher


Renowned medievalist Stephanie Trigg has a new blog, humanities researcher. Auspiciously adorned with a portrait of Christine de Pisan, the blog has been launched "as a space for reflection on research in the humanities in Australia" and as a place to reflect upon "the question of how researchers in the humanities can make their work available and accessible to communities of readers outside the academy." Brand spanking new (born on Bastille Day, no less), humanities researcher looks like it will be of interest to readers following the recent threads on the humanities, the sciences, and the question of the future here.

Thanks for this mention. It is my first blog and I'm astounded at the speed with which the news gets round and the links get made. Everything I've read about blogs turns out to be true, so far! I'm not new to reading them, though, and have long admired In the Middle, as an ideal instance of what an academic blog can do. We've never met, I think, but perhaps we can swap blog notes on the Cruise of Death/Ship of Fools next week...
