About Projects in History

This blog collects bibliographies and research resources in history, compiled by faculty, students, and other researchers. Ideally, individuals who make use of a bibliography or one of the research guides will expand on those resources in the course of pursuing their work, and then submit a new/remixed page to Projects in History, along with a brief summary of what their research goal was, and the resources they found most useful in pursuing it. All authors of new or remixed materials will have the option publishing their work on this website. Contributors will also have the option of attaching a brief biography and contact information (see example below) to their published materials.


Charles Upchurch is an Associate Professor of British history at Florida State University. He received his Ph.D. in modern British history from Rutgers University in 2003, and his research focuses on nineteenth-century British gender and social history. His latest book, “Beyond the Law”: The Politics of Ending the Death Penalty for Sodomy in Britain, was published 2021 by Temple University Press, recounting the previously untold story of the parliamentary effort to end the death penalty for sodomy in the early nineteenth century. His first book, Before Wilde: Sex Between Men in Britain’s Age of Reform was published in 2009 by the University of California Press, and explores the ways in which family and class influenced the interpretation of same-sex desire in the period between 1820 and 1870. His work has been published in Gender and History, the Journal of the History of Sexuality, the Journal of Social History, and other academic journals. Chuck tweets from @cupchurch2
