Students: if you feel like there is so much to do & everything is overwhelming, please know that while it may *seem* like a good idea to sleep less, skip meals & avoid exercise, those things are an investment in yourself that will serve you better. Faculty & staff: same for you.
Just a gentle reminder as we begin to gear up for the last few weeks of the semester.
How to write a conference paper: - write an abstract - make that abstract your introduction - regret proposing this abstract - start writing the conclusion - see if you can make the conclusion sound like what you promised - fill in the middle? - prepare your apology

The Mickey Mouse Club has a new theme song...and I like it! https://twitter.com/megankatenelson/status/1105868454635163648 …
I will now be spelling “bourgeoisie” to this tune forevermore 😂
Very excited to announce that the Intra-American Slave Trade Database launched yesterday. This research tool, funded by @NEHgov, documents more than 11,500 shipments that forcibly moved enslaved African people from one part of the Americas to another: https://slavevoyages.org/american/database …
This is such an excellent resource for both individual research and as a teaching/learning tool for use in the classroom.
I like to decline things without giving a reason (just because someone asks me to do something doesn’t mean I need to provide a justification for choosing not to accept the invitation). But “secret reasons” is a much more interesting response! https://twitter.com/KelliAgodon/status/1100419448861732864 …
Grad students, three very important things to be learned here: 1) You can say no 2) You do not need to justify saying no 3) “Secret Reasons” is an excellent and completely acceptable justification #PhDChat
Congratulations to my brilliant colleague and dear friend @TottenMc for receiving one of @UArkansas Diane D. Blair Fellowships! She is conducting excellent research on Arkansas politician Justice Jim Johnson and massive resistance. #WomenAlsoKnowHistory @womnknowhistory
This is a collection of incredible works that have to return to the library today -a few may or may not be past due 🤭 - & I highly recommend reading all of them. As this was the third time I checked out or ILL’d many of them, it’s probably about time I bought my own copies lol
We need to encourage students to take intellectual risks. Too many make safe choices because they fear getting a bad grade.
This is important. All historians have poured time into research projects that lead..to dead ends. Students who do the right things, and pursue the right leads, and end up at a wall, in my view should be applauded & not graded down if we saw promise in the project.
