EMCO Blog Open for Submissions

Call for Blogposts


The Elizabeth Montagu Correspondence Online (EMCO) – a new, Open Access, critical edition of the letters written by ‘Queen of the Bluestockings’ Elizabeth Montagu (1718-1800) – is about launch. Our first release in September 2020 will be her letters to her friend Hester Thrale Piozzi, and over the coming months other correspondence will be added. It is our aim that all known extant letters will be published in our digital edition, and our hope that it will enable new research into Montagu and her network.


To celebrate the launch, we invite submissions for our website blog (c.500-1500 words) on any topic related to Montagu, the wider Bluestocking network, letters, and eighteenth-century women’s history, as well as discussions on digital humanities. We particularly welcome submissions from MA and PhD students, as well as Early Career Researchers.


Please send a short abstract (2-3 sentences) to Dr Jack Orchard (j.t.g.orchard@swansea.ac.uk) and Dr Anna Louise Senkiw (asenkiw@brookes.ac.uk). Submissions accepted on a rolling basis.
