U.S. Intellectual History Blog


Friends and Colleagues,

To prevent my edging into non-USIH topics here I’ve constructed a Turnerian safety valve weblog as a “catch all” for other intellectual frontiers. By no means is this a move away from USIH. Rather, it is more that I’ve found myself wanting to reflect in long form on matters that either haven’t easily fit into my old weblog, History and Education, or are too cumbersome for Facebook (Twitter be damned). Of course my new effort may need some tweaking; I just bought my all-purpose exploration suit and it will probably need alteration. As for USIH, I plan to continue my “Light Reading” series—albeit with better focus—and get back to posting longer, more narrow posts on historiography and topical analysis.
