By now you will have seen a few opinion pieces posted here by staff members of the IHR. We asked them to tell us about their favourite historical novel but gave them quite a bit of latitude in how they approached that topic. I think you’ll agree that the pieces already posted offer quite a varied response to the question. More will follow in the next few days.
As we had fun writing these short pieces ourselves we thought it would be a good idea to turn this into a competition. Therefore, we are offering several prizes for the best opinion piece about your favourite historical novel (Why? And, if applicable, how this has influenced your thoughts on academic history?).
Please post your entries on the comment facility on the Opinions page.
On Friday we will announce the winners.
Prizes on offer:
- £25 Amazon book vouchers
- 1 year subscription to the IHR journal Historical Research
- For your post to be included you must have registered for our conference. If you have not already done so you may do so in the left-hand column.
