Something Actually Interesting in Perspectives


I’d like to draw your attention to the November issue of Perspectives on History, the official publication of the American Historical Association.  It’s all about issues with digital history.  The articles are not required reading for our class, but highly recommended:

Matthew Delmont, “Does It Count? Scholarly Communication and African American History” @mattdelmont (great scholar/twitterer)

Walter Hawthorne, Brandon Locke, and DeLacey A. Yancey, “Digital History, from Both Sides”

Rick Anderson, “Open Access, Copyright, and Licensing for Humanists: What Historians Need to Know”

Robert Bowen, “A Message from the National Humanities Alliance: Yes, Your E-mails to Congress Matter”

P.S. A few dates in the syllabus were not switched from Tuesday, when the class met last Spring, to Monday, but rest assured that the class always meets on Monday evenings!
