During class today, writer Janice Nimura mentioned two recent posts on Slate and Bustle about popular history books, and to read more, here are the links:
- Andrew Kahn and Rebecca Onion**, for Slate: “Is History Written About Men, by Men?” (January 6, 2016)
- Kristian Wilson, for Bustle: “25 History Books Written By Women” (January 20, 2016)
** On Twitter, Rebecca Onion, who is the History writer for Slate, runs Slate Vault, and is an American Studies Ph.D., is doing great things under the wide umbrella of history in public: check out her feed @RebeccaOnion. If you think you’d like to talk to her at some point in class, let me know, and we’ll invite her!
I think it would be awesome to invite Rebecca Onion! Do we have time for this?
We might (in April!) — I’ll shoot her a message in the next week or two.
