Historikz is the virtual studioffice of Kasia Zygmuntowicz. Me.
This is where I write about my research and writing process. What I’m looking for, what I’m finding, what sources and resources I’m using and the task of building a h’story from fragments and occasionally fantasy.
What’s the h- apostrophe-story? The word ‘history’ feels too big to me. It feels old, official, absolute – the real story, written by an Historian, a really big ‘H’. It’s been a while since history was reclaimed by feminist scholars as herstory, deconstructed and reconstructed into myriad other histories – all part of the wHole story. The intimate, home-made, small-scale histories of our personal space, our communal lives are what I think of as h’stories.
My subjects are varied but my true loves are houses, homes and neighbourhoods, spaces, places and people, communities, culture and creativity.
So get a cuppa, take a seat, have a browse follow the links to other places and people.
If you like what you find, maybe we can tell a h’story together.
