This is just a quick announcement to welcome the latest addition to the U.S. Intellectual History Blog: Lora Burnett! Lora is a PhD student in the History of Ideas program at the University of Texas at Dallas. She’ll be joining the blog as our regular weekend blogger. For the past year, Lora has been a frequent commenter on this blog, posting under the initials LD.
Lora is also joining Tim Lacy and myself as the third member of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History’s Publications Committee which, among other things, is responsible for this blog.
Welcome to the blog and PubComm, Lora! We look forward to your contributions!
(Finally, as promised last week, and no doubt breathlessly awaited by our vast readership: my book ms word count for the previous week. I’m afraid it’s a not very magnificent 200 words. I could blame THATCamp AHA, a weekend of solo parenting, and various other commitments. I could also plead that I did a lot of other book-related work last week. But a book doesn’t write itself and, at least last week, I didn’t write it much either. I hope to have a more impressive number for y’all next week.)
