The Arts in Society blog provides a platform for PhD researchers affiliated with the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society (LUCAS) as well as guest writers from the wider academic community. We aim to reflect the variety of academic disciplines that come together in LUCAS, and consequently we welcome blog posts that reflect on language, literature, art and / or cultures and the interaction between them.

Blog posts should be related to your research in the broad sense of the word. This can include anything ranging from general introductions to a research project, topics you don't have the space to explore in your dissertation, research experiences, conference reports, historical or literary reflections, book reviews, et cetera.

We aim to strengthen the ties between academic bloggers. If you maintain a personal research blog, whether you are linked to LUCAS or not, we invite you to occasionally repost on the Arts in Society blog. In addition we run a bloggers group which convenes on a regular basis to discuss blog posts in the making and other blog-related issues. If you are open to the idea of blogging but have not undertaken it so far, or if you are an experienced blogger who enjoys regular contact with fellow bloggers, we invite you to join us.

If you would like to write for us, or if you want to meet up with our bloggers group and be included in the mailing list, please have a look at our author's instructions and contact us, preferably on leidenartsinsocietyblog@hum.leidenuniv.nl. Please include one of the email addresses of the editors below, so as to make sure you will receive a response. We hope to hear from you!
