U.S. Intellectual History Blog


I just received word that a roundtable I proposed–“The Future of U.S. Intellectual History: Challenges and Possibilities”–has been accepted by the powers-that-be at the Organization of American Historians for their March 2008 conference in New York. It will feature a diverse range of scholarly perspectives and interests, to be moderated by yours truly. I hope to see some of the blog’s readers there.

S-USIH Comment Policy

We ask that those who participate in the discussions generated in the Comments section do so with the same decorum as they would in any other academic setting or context. Since the USIH bloggers write under our real names, we would prefer that our commenters also identify themselves by their real name. As our primary goal is to stimulate and engage in fruitful and productive discussion, ad hominem attacks (personal or professional), unnecessary insults, and/or mean-spiritedness have no place in the USIH Blog’s Comments section. Therefore, we reserve the right to remove any comments that contain any of the above and/or are not intended to further the discussion of the topic of the post. We welcome suggestions for corrections to any of our posts. As the official blog of the Society of US Intellectual History, we hope to foster a diverse community of scholars and readers who engage with one another in discussions of US intellectual history, broadly understood.

  1. Mike: Congrats! That means that USIH folks will be represented at at least two (AHA & OAH) of the three major (+ THS) annual historical conferences in 2008. [Aside: And I’m working on a THS proposal.]

    I believe we can now confidently challenge anyone who asserts that electronic media is merely ephemeral! – TL
