Reflections on the February 2013 Tuning Workshop

Today’s guest blogger is Sarah Shurts, an AHA Tuning participant and assistant professor of history at Bergen Community College.

Comedian Joel McHale recently gave an interview where he mentioned that he had been a history major but had turned to acting because “it’s not like you can open a history shop!” While those of us whose passion for history became our profession might cringe at this, we also must acknowledge that many of our history majors do go on to professions that have nothing, on the surface, to do with history.
