What We’re Reading: April 8, 2010 Edition - American Historical Association
It feels like summer in D.C. (where the AHA headquarters resides) so it seemed appropriate this week to include some links to a favorite summer sport: baseball. But first, some newsworthy items: Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell revives Confederate History Month, a recent forum discusses graduate humanities education, a grad student unearths Haiti’s Declaration of Independence, and the New York Times investigates the legality of unpaid internships (another summer staple). We also bring you two articles related to research and technology: evaluate Martha Ballard’s Diary through “topic modeling” and discover the new book2net scanner at the Library of Congress. Finally, EDSITEment takes a look at poetry this month, Curtis J. Bonk offers 30 writing tips, and the UpNext wiki holds discussions on libraries and museums.
