What We’re Reading: March 11, 2010 Edition

Women With Wings in WWIIIn the news this week, former AHA president Jonathan Spence will give this year’s Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities. Also newsworthy, a closer look at the new College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) report, which we noted on the AHA blog Tuesday. We bring you four articles on publishing, discussing form, blogs, and publishers as gatekeepers. To continue to celebrate Women’s History Month we present four women’s history articles. Learn about women’s history blogs, events this month, and see fascinating photos of women in history. Two links to history audio and walking tours also make it into WWR this week,  one on U Street in Washington, D.C. and the other on North Carolina State University. Finally, we finish off with the history of the Census, Popular Science archives, the Toronto Museum Project, an origin of a simile, and a look at jobs of “yesteryear.”
