PhDinHistory is Back

Happily, the PhDinHistory blog returned to the Internet last night at, as the previously anonymous author decided to make his identity public: Sterling Fluharty, a doctoral student at the University of Oklahoma. Sterling and I have corresponded a number of times over the past few years, and I’ve always found him a thoughtful and engaging critic of my work and the work of the AHA. As the first few months of PhDinHistory demonstrated, he is also quite prolific. After a week of laments on the blogosphere from Ralph Luker and Dan Cohen, Sterling apparently decided to continue his useful and helpful site.

Welcome back!

    Sadly, the author of apparently doesn’t realize that history Ph.D.s can work outside the academy, often making considerably more income and reaching far more people with good history. I suggest that Sterling Fluharty read the AHA’s Task Force on Public History Report and the AHA’s “Careers in History” brochure to broaden his horizons!

    Victoria Harden, thank you for that tip. On the job market myself, and with Sallie Mae breathing down my neck, I can appreciate any and all career possibilities that will let me do history and pay the bills.
