About

From blog author Natalie Bennett

Philobiblon started life in July 2004 as a mostly women’s history blog, back in the days when newsreaders still said “a blog is an online diary” every time they used the word. Back then I was working on a history book that became a series of four history books that I still hope to get back to one day. History still has a strong place, although usually with a political slant.

Where does the name come from? This early post explains. And this blog also has a “patron saint”, Anne Clifford.

It’s charted quite a bit of my political life since I joined the Green Party in January 2006, and these days is mostly a books blog (often to record readings/ideas/facts for myself, as well as to share with others – that’s why you’ll often find page references), with an occasional line in short commentary/linkage that won’t fit on Twitter.

A few favourite posts from over the years:

Green politics

Feminism

Women’s history

You’ll also find me on the Camden Green Party blog, and my theatre and arts reviews on My London Your London.

I was the founder of the Carnival of Feminists, and am still a books editor on Blogcritics.org. You can find more about me on my personal website.
