Over on the HNN mainpage, Peter Sterns writes about"The Writing Life
". While setting a remarkable example, Sterns is preaching to the choir, so far as my colleagues at Cliopatria and Rebunk are concerned. Jonathan Dresner's"Grade Inflation – Why It's a Nightmare
," provoked considerable discussion at HNN and elsewhere on the net. KC Johnson has had a remarkable series of pieces, including two op-eds for History News Service,"What's A Convention For Any More?
" and"Could We Postpone the Election – Even If We Wanted To?
" which also appearedon HNN
, and"The Not So Hidden Agenda of Global Studies
." [Don't tell
anyone that it first appeared on David Horowitz's FrontpageRag, er, FrontpageMag
.] Derek Catsam's colleagues at Rebunk
, Tom Bruscino and Stephen Tootle, make their debuts on HNN's mainpage this week with Bruscino's"Does America Usually Win the War But Lose the Peace?
" and Tootle's"In the Shadow of William McKinley
Jonathan Dresner -
Actually, I consider this summer to have been kind of a wash, in terms of productivity. A paper I'd delivered in draft form before was revised, re-presented, re-revised and ambitiously submitted to a field-leading journal. I wrote a book review. I didn't get a lot more than that done, academically speaking; now, having taken more time than I expected to get even that much done, I'm struggling to put my syllabi together.
As proud as I am of my blogging and commentaries, not a lot of people consider it 'productive' history.
