What We’re Reading: November 4, 2010 Edition

Backstory SupernaturalWe begin this week by linking to what others are looking forward to at this year’s 125th Annual Meeting: Medieval history sessions, digital history sessions, and the Cliopatria awards. Also, if you’re on the job market, The Chronicle has an article on reducing stress.  Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with two articles detailing events, more resources, and recognizing a number of Native American women. We also link to three National Archives related pieces: on possible theft by an employee, a new report on changes, and a video on Civil War documents. Read three other Civil War related links, which note the upcoming sesquicentennial and some remaining myths. Even though Halloween is over, the Backstory podcast tackles some spooky stuff, we see some ghostly images in daguerreotypes, and Jane Austen had some frightening grammar. Finally, things get a bit political in two articles on the misuse of history in politics.
