New Site Blogrolled: PhDinHistory
A few weeks ago I opened a discussion about a new history weblog, PhDinHistory. Although I’m still uncomfortable with its anonymity, I’ve decided to blogroll the site. The deciding factor was basically the relevance of professional topics being covered there: general history research questions, state of the profession, job market, etc. Check it out.
Update: I don’t know if you’ll believe this, but I just went to the AHA’s weblog (at about 9:55 a.m., CST), and noticed that Robert Townsend also recommended PhDinHistory today! I think this is indicative of the relatively small arena that is – right now – the world of history weblogs. I decided to post on PhDinHistory this morning after noticing the site in my browser’s url history bar over the weekend. I realized then that I wanted to revisit the site’s merits. I suppose it’s nice to know that another respectable professional in the field (Doctor Townsend) came to the same conclusion as me. C’est la vie. – TL
