U.S. Intellectual History Blog


I just noticed that there is a listing for “intellectual history” at wikipedia.  Its subcategories are “Europe and the West,” “Asia and the Far East,” and “Africa and the Middle East.”  What gives?  Where’s the U.S.?

The listing is here.

    Mike, it’s so great that you posted this. I’ve had the wikipedia entry in my e-mail since last week, trying to decide on a way to post about it here.

    Step one for our entry can be David’s entry below on a “canon” and your subsequent comment. – TL
