A bright high school student just asked me for a recommendation for a book about the bronze age. Any @histodons or folx have a recommendation for a public facing book?

    Finally! The mystery of who the Chinese Makhno was has been revealed and debunked! No, anarchist guerrillas did not operate against the CPC at Yunan during the 30s–50s. The Chinese American anarchist who mentioned the Chinese Makhno in his oral history simply didn’t have all the facts.

    When studying the Viking Age, one decision that needs to be made is how to relate to the sagas. Are they historical sources and can be used? Or are they literature and can't be used? Usually, my students land on the side of yes, despite all their problems, the sagas can be used. But this time around, through critical analysis, my students declared that the sagas can't be used. This is great. But, this also means that the students have declared one of our textbooks useless.

    The AHA has sent a letter to members of the Indiana House Education Committee opposing Senate Bill 202, which would “create a policy for granting tenure… based on how well that faculty member has fostered ‘intellectual diversity’ within the classroom.” @histodons

    Monographs that basically say "trust me, I'm a historian" re: sources and methodology drive me nuts. You made decisions about what collections to consult and what evidence to use, decisions that when explained help the reader evaluate your argument. It wouldn't kill you to write a few paragraphs on this process. Those who aren't interested in the method will skip it and those who are will have a deeper appreciation for all of your hard work. @histodons

    ❗ There's still time to register (free of charge) for the project workshop, where the trainers will explain the methodology, a computational method that allows us to analyse discourses.

    It can help us, for example, study the opinions of the population, combining ontological, argumentative and agency analysis.

    A question on Canadian History.

    I teach for new graduate students in US history an historiography seminar, where I assign 2 articles/chapters per session. And I'd very much like to include articles on Canada, 19th & 20th century. They're becoming good critical readers of scholarship, but know nothing about Canadian history (except what I did with them on early modern period). Any recommendations?
