Founded in January 2014, NOTCHES is a self-described "peer-reviewed, collaborative and international history of sexuality blog that aims to get people inside and outside the academy thinking about sexuality in the past and in the present." The blog is edited by an international team of scholars and publishes a variety of blog posts. Most blog posts illuminate a specific aspect of the history of sexuality, often accompanied by related images or video clips. For instance, in one recent post, historian Rebecca Jennings writes about the experiences of lesbian women in Australia during the post-World War II era. NOTCHES also publishes a number of interviews with scholars who have recently published books related to the history of sexuality. In one recent interview, historian Jerry T. Watkins III discusses his recent book Queering the Redneck Riviera: Sexuality and the Rise of Florida Tourism. Visitors can browse previous blog posts by subject tags such as historiography, masculinity, and cultural history.
