The Four Nations History Network blog is a weekly collaborative platform. Guest bloggers offer their thoughts on the applicability of four nations approaches to their research, often sparking lively debate.

Blogs are typically 750-1,000 words, and the upper limit for a piece is 1,500. The subject is one of your choice, but it should have a four nations angle – pro, anti, anywhere in between! The Network has hosted blogs on the methodological implications of four nations approaches, the interaction of peoples from across the nations within and outside the UK, and the relationship between the nations, among others.
The blogs usually focus on the period c.1700 to the modern day, but we are also interested in pieces that focus on the cusp of the early modern/modern (however defined).
The Network also welcome blogs that are topical or are reaction pieces which provide the long view on current events.
