What We’re Reading: June 4, 2009 Edition - American Historical Association
In the current economy there has been a lot of attention on the housing bubble bursting, and in the first article we link to this week two authors from the Chronicle ask, “Will Higher Education be the Next Bubble to Burst?” Also looking at the future and universities, Phil Pochoda considers what’s in store for university presses. We also link to two Civil War related pieces: thoughts on the centennial commemoration with an eye toward the Civil War sesquicentennial, and a look at women who fought in the Civil War. Then, read about visual gems in Google Books, the Google Books settlement, cycling the Underground Railroad, Donna Reed’s saved fan mail, space monkeys, the end of the Reading Archives blog, and a history of GM CEOs. Finally, just for fun, check out, for series of comics where a humanities character faces budget cuts.
