I’m sure, dear readers, that you are familiar with our only public history professional organization, the National Council on Public History. You may also be familiar with NCPH’s blog on unexpected exhibit practice, Off the Wall, for which I wrote a few posts about history on the internet. Now NCPH has upped the ante with […]

Cliopatria awards

Posted on January 7, 2011 under blogs, history of science

Congrats to this year’s Cliopatria Award winners, recognizing the best in history blogging.  Lots of great stuff to add to the ol’ feed reader.  No explicitly public history-themed blogs made the cut this year, but a history of science blog did win best individual blog, so at least one of my teams was represented. Visit […]

Two things

Posted on November 12, 2009 under blogs, me

I’ve posted my slides from the talk on museum ethics and open access at the Association of Moving Image Archivists conference I attended last week.  This is the talk a museum archivist called “inspiring.”  I have to tweak my SHOT paper a bit but I’ll put it up there eventually too. It’s November again, time […]

Around the ‘sphere

Here’s the news from the history blogosphere! Bill Turkel has stopped writing Digital History Hacks, a terrific blog which ran for 3 excellent years.  Its ending gives me an opportunity to catch up on actually doing some of the projects he blogged about.  I’m sure he will keep populating the public history blogosphere with his […]

The history of science megablog list

Posted on August 20, 2008 under blogs, history of science

John Lynch from Arizona State has been developing a nice list of history of science blogs/blogs written by historians of science, which is very exciting because it’s a great resource and also because I’ve been meaning to do such a thing for ages and now I don’t have to.  The list is shortish, but there […]

PH is central to history blogging

Posted on July 14, 2008 under blogs, me, public history | 3 Comments

How nice to see, upon my return from Detroit, that PH has been noted as one of 80 blogs central to history blogging by Cliopatrician Ralph Luker.  Thanks, Ralph! It’s a great list, full of blogs I admire and blogs I’ve never read, and I look forward to exploring it more.  I’m happy to have […]
