Call for Blog Proposals

The Animating Archives blog has been active since September 2020, with a range of posts from academics, artists and archivists. The Animating Archives project connects academics, artists, researchers and activists working creatively and politically with archives, including but not limited to the Women’s Art Library and the Jo Spence Memorial Library Archive.

We’re now calling for proposals for 2022: we are looking for submissions of text and images by anyone working on ‘animating’ archives through their research. The submissions are restricted by the format of the blog, so we encourage shorter length (max 1000 word) pieces but are open to discussing longer essays. We are also keen to provide space for sharing resources, which could include expanded reading lists, interviews and reviews. Image based submissions are also welcome, as long as you have permission to reproduce the material. We can also host links to video works.

We are able to offer a fee of £150 for each blog selected for publication and welcome existing work and work in progress for consideration. If you’re interested in participating, please email a 250 word proposal for a blog post by Friday 28 January.

To submit a proposal please contact:
