What We’re Reading: February 12, 2009 Edition

In last week’s What We’re Reading, we linked to a New York Times story about an article under consideration for publication in the American Historical Review. This week we link to a follow-up in the NYT about how the article was rejected, and to AHR editor Robert Schneider’s response to the whole leaked article situation. Then, read about two policy statements that deal with oral history and Institutional Review Boards (IRB). Lincoln gets two mentions in this week’s post when we link to an interview with James McPherson and to new photos on the Library of Congress Flickr page. In the theme of digital history we have three links: a new archive of medieval manuscripts, Lisa Spiro’s take on the digital humanities in 2008, and an online museum scavenger hunt. Finally, you may scream for it, but what do you really know about the history of ice cream? Article By: Elisabeth Grant, Vernon Horn, and Robert B. Townsend

June Issue of the American Historical Review Online Now

The June issue of the American Historical Review contains two articles and an AHR Forum. One article offers an argument for an expansive understanding of the history of sensibilities, while the other takes us to Berlin, circa 1800, for an analysis of the impact of public clocks on emerging notions of time discipline. The Forum provides three perspectives on the Atlantic world in the 18th and early 19th century, focusing on imperial presence of Britain, Spain, and France.
