Call for articles for SHCG Newsletter

I am writing as the new News Editor for SHCG and would love to hear from anyone who would like to submit an article for the next issue of the SHCG newsletter, the deadline for which is a little under four weeks away, on Friday 28 August 2015.

If you have a brief news and topical information for inclusion in the 'Bulletin Board' section; a short article for the regular 'Theory & Practice' and 'Object Focus' sections, or a review of a recent exhibition then do please get in touch.

Perhaps you'd like to tell readers about a recent exhibition or project in which you were involved, or write about your favourite item from the collections?

It could be that recent events have made you want to open up debate on a particular topic relevant to social history in museums, or the sector in general?

Maybe you'd even like to write in response to something you read about in the last issue, or which was raised as part of a discussion on the ever popular SHCG e-mail list?

Whatever inspires you to submit information or a short article, I'd love to hear from you! Please contact me by e-mailing

  • Information for the Bulletin Board can be submitted in the form of a press release or a few paragraphs of text (if the latter, up to a maximum of 300 words).
  • Object Focus submissions can be around 400-500 words (one page) or 900-1,000 words (two pages).
  • Theory & Practice articles should be 900-1,000 words.

If you'd like to submit something for the next issue, please email me direct, at your earliest convenience, so I can pencil in your submission.

Many thanks, I'll look forward to hearing from you.
