NOTCHES: (re)marks on the history of sexuality

NOTCHES is an international, collaborative public history blog that I co-founded in order to get people inside and outside the academy thinking about sex and sexualities in the past and in the present.

NOTCHES is supported by the Raphael Samuel History Centre, which is committed to encouraging the widest possible participation in historical research and debate, and we echo that mission. The NOTCHES blog is accessible, inclusive, relevant, entertaining and intellectually engaged. Our international team of bloggers considers the history of sex and sexuality in its broadest sense: the way it is connected to the history of gender, society, politics, economies, and cultures, and the way it informs current issues. NOTCHES posts have been republished at the Huffington Post, Slate, The Boston Globe, and translated for publication in Colombia. In addition to innovative and original blogs, NOTCHES also includes special features like Dispatches, critical responses from our readers to conferences and events in the field, and Archives of Desire, in which authors illuminate the history of sexuality by showcasing how we can interpret primary source documents and objects.

NOTCHES’ nearly 300 posts have been viewed half a million times. To read more and to follow NOTCHES, visit us at NotchesBlog.com
