What We’re Reading: November 12, 2009 Edition - American Historical Association
In the news this week, new restrictions and fees for researchers entering the U.S. raises concerns, Marilyn B. Young’s Decolonization lecture is now online, historian Robert N. Proctor continues to deal with Big Tobacco, ICHS gears up for Amsterdam 2010, and Newsweek takes a look at the last decade. On the topic of African American history we bring you two articles: one on Howard University’s Moorland-Spingarn Research Center and the other on BlackPast.org. Then we turn to the archives, looking to forgotten treasures and a turn to the digital. And finally, we round this post of with some fun: performer Lin-Manuel Miranda raps about Alexander Hamilton, a “historic gastronomist” recreates meals from the past, and the University of Chicago lets visitors “make [their] own academic sentence.” Article By: Miriam Hauss Cunningham, Elisabeth Grant, Vernon Horn, Arnita Jones, Jessica Pritchard, and Robert B.
