What We’re Reading: December 16, 2010 Edition

Preparations for the steadily approaching 125th Annual Meeting meant there was less time to round up fun links this week, but we managed to find a few. We link to news of NEH awards, a list of 50 American History Blogs, a job ad for Founding Fathers, and a look back at the Boston Tea Party. Then, we came across a number of videos this week:  go “Inside the Vaults” with the National Archives, watch the lessons of science historian James Burke, and hear how it would sound if Lady Gaga taught history.

What We’re Reading: September 16, 2010

In the news this week, historian William H. Goetzmann has passed away, the AHA has joined with a number of individuals and organizations to unseal Nixon Testimony, and the National Book Festival has released its schedule.  We also link to three videos this week, featuring James McPherson, the Library of Congress's collections, and "citizen archivists" at National Archives. Then, read about journalism and history, analog tools, the bygone tradition of pocket notebooks, and the flow of the Mississippi River. Finally, just for fun, hear alternatives to the RateMyProfessor.com site's "red-hot chili peppers," and check out a new game at EDSITEment.
