What We’re Reading: June 2, 2011 Edition - American Historical Association
We begin this week with a link to AHA President Anthony Grafton and AHA Executive Director Jim Grossman’s article on “The Wrong Way to Lower College Costs.” Then, turn to the news of the bill to end Teaching American History grants, the declassification the Pentagon Papers and a recording of JFK discussing the U.S. space program, the announcement that David McCullough, among other authors, will appear at the Library of Congress’s National Book Festival this year, and the National Archives’ hiring of a Wikipedian in Residence. Finally, we round out this post with links to digital history: a digital reconstruction of 1814 Washington, D.C., the new Transnational Subjects journal (which will accept digital works), and a call for submissions at Writing History in the Digital Age.
