My weekly newsletter returns!

With 56 issues published so far, I took a break in late September for both personal and professional reasons. While I greatly enjoyed curating each week’s issue, it also took a tremendous amount of preparation even as my schedule became busier. I also undertook a comprehensive review of my future plans and commitments.

After this six-week hiatus, I’m pleased to announce that my weekly newsletter returns on November 4 as The Historyogi Post!

All existing subscribers of the Red Dot Digest are automatically subscribed to the Historyogi Post. New subscribers can sign up here.

Thanks to all my readers who gave thoughtful comments for the reader’s survey! Based on the feedback, I’ve streamlined the sections from five to four, and will aim to include more non-Western sources. The Historyogi Post retains the best of the Red Dot Digest while offering content with a greater focus on social, cultural, political and historical themes beyond the West.

I will also be introducing a new monthly column, The Yogi’s Verdict, which will review a book, journal article or exhibition related to Singapore or global history. My first column will be out on November 11 on my revamped website:

All past issues of the Red Dot Digest remain accessible here, along with upcoming issues of the Historyogi Post.

Newsletter On Hiatus + Reader’s Survey

Dear Red Dot Digest reader,

I started the Red Dot Digest with one goal in mind: to show that history (especially Singapore history) is not boring. Since July 2018, I have worked to share my academic interest in history with you in small easy-to-read snippets.

After 56 issues, I will be temporarily putting the Red Dot Digest on hiatus until November 2019. This is due to several professional and personal commitments that will be taking up much of my time during this period. 

I feel that this is also a good juncture to get feedback from my readers on what has worked with the newsletter and what could be improved upon. I would be very grateful if you could answer a short survey of six questions.

The Red Dot Digest will return with Issue 57 on November 4, 2019. 

Yours historically,
