Example of a British Historian’s Blog: The Little Professor

Historians are beginning to use personal blogs to share ideas and even serious scholarship. One of the best example is The Little Professor blog. This is run by the Victorian historian Miriam Elizabeth Burstein, who specializes in 19th-cen. literature and women writers. Although Burstein has produced numerous important publications (including the recent Victorian Reformations: Historical Fiction and Religious Controversy, 1820-1900, which is currently sitting on my desk waiting to be read) much of her fame in the historical community has come from her blog. It’s definitely worth checking out as a good example of how historians can use blogs and the internet more widely to promote and spread their work.
