For Summer 2023, the theme is “Islands.”

We’re seeking story ideas about islands, whether in Connecticut or connected to Connecticut in some way. These can be literal islands, islands of (as Benedict Anderson called them) “imagined communities,” or conceptual islands.

For Fall 2023, the theme is “Law.”

We’re seeking stories about law, legal issues, and legalities, from a variety of lenses: as social, economic, political, cultural, or environmental history, for example.
