New Collaborative Initiative with NACBS

The British Scholar Society is pleased to announce a new collaboration with the North American Conference of British Studies (NACBS) regarding our blog on Teaching Britain and the World. All posts will from now on be published both on our website and on the NABCS’ blog, The British and Irish Studies Intelligencer. This serves as a call for authors who would like to contribute to this pedagogy-blog with a post that is no longer than 1000 words. As historians, most of us are not only researchers, but also academic teachers, and we are keen to foster the dialogue about your different experiences, plans and projects in the university classroom. The (by no means exclusive) list of possible subjects includes teaching methods, the challenge of balancing research and teaching obligations, the construction of syllabi, the use of primary sources, the impact of current affairs and public debates on classroom discussions, language barriers, and much more. In order to make this as broad a discussion as possible, we are keen to include colleagues at every level of their career, who study any period from the seventeenth century to the present, teach at a variety of academic institutions, and come from both Anglophone and non-Anglophone backgrounds. We are also keen to include student perspectives. The only requirement is that the blog entry has to focus on the specific challenges of teaching the history of Britain and the World. If you have an idea for a blog entry, please get in touch with Dr. Helene von Bismarck at helenedotvondotbismarckatbritishscholardotorg  (helenedotvondotbismarckatbritishscholardotorg)  .
