Why experiential learning is important: today I am writing my first lecture and it’s taking forever and is full of frustrations about what to add and what to cut. I wouldn’t have known just how much thought/editing/care goes into a class if I didn’t have to create one myself.

Quoted @ferrengipson

If you could have anyone from any time paint your portrait, who would you choose?

Johan Zoffany, and painted as a conversation piece. https://t.co/1NZo3qkQ9H

Planning 🤦🏻‍♀️ perhaps not the most auspicious start...

A little bit of love from home. The smallest things are the things that matter the most these days. Now to turn my new muse’s attention to inspired lecture writing and course planing... https://t.co/fR71Y3xEX2

Quoted @DonicaLBelisle

Today! Join me at 2 PM central for a discussion on whiteness and consumer culture. Details below. https://t.co/DCHvGectZg

Great talk by @DonicaLBelisle on whiteness, colonization, and the rise of mass retail in Canada. There is so much more to say about race and consumer culture in Canada and work like this sets a great example. https://t.co/3FsBgtmFVQ

Quoted @BillSherman_

Fully funded PhD Studentship with @Warburg_News and @V_and_A: https://t.co/5JkPcKagtn Precious opportunity to rewrite the history of museums, the nineteenth century and the relationship between the arts and the sciences. Spread the word!

This looks fab!! https://t.co/WGbR8baUIS

Quoted @joepurshouse

I'm sure some essays I submitted as an undergraduate were laughably bad, but if I found out that my lecturer had took snippets and shared them on Twitter for laughs I'd have felt betrayed and mortified (whether anonymised or not). Something I keep seeing that irks me.

Don’t do this. Just don’t. https://t.co/Ra28dLqh9H

Newly discovered just outside of Verona, what could be this year's biggest discovery - an almost entirely intact Roman mosaic villa floor! https://t.co/tZwy0yfvNL

This is absolutely fabulous! In another life I would have loved to be part of a team making these discoveries. https://t.co/zCJUZcIW5n

Quoted @amhistorymuseum

The first Memorial Day observances were organized by women and African Americans. Discover the significance behind the day. https://t.co/X3Sv2hHaib

Military history is #women’s history, military #history is #AfricanAmerican history #MemorialDay https://t.co/xsnNkIg8E0

Quoted @AmPhilSociety

For the first in our series on the cooking recipes in the papers of Ben Franklin, we talk to Marie Pellissier @MAPellissier of @OIEAHC about the interdisciplinary nature of food history and whether the 18thC French or English had a better puff pastry. https://t.co/EBPz8ZQwhy

Hello, this past week has been my week off and I’ve been reading for pure joy, and that includes the fabulous work of my dear friends, such as that featured below. 💛 Today is just history fan girl day! (that is everyday) #foodhistory of #VastEarlyAmerica https://t.co/CCbt0v0RL7

“I see my project as a shift in the way we approach records, outlining the possibilities for telling these stories in a different way.” https://t.co/HKWt2HSszZ

Quoted @caycarbs

Enjoyed chatting with the W&M news about my research! https://t.co/mbqhVzVb1Y

#Twitterstorians check out the innovative research @caycarbs is doing! So excited to see what she does next! https://t.co/pBTWf75tLI

Sadly, something came & I can no longer write an essay on Lydia Maria Child for ABC-CLIO's "Women Who Changed the World" publication. Trying to do right by the organizer & find another scholar. Any #twitterstorians up to the task? Plz DM/email me & PLZ SHARE! @womnknowhistory

Happy birthday to Albrecht Dürer, who was born #OnThisDay 1471. So vain, he probably thinks this tweet is about him. https://t.co/RGugZ3hWEc

I never know if I should share good news, but I was really proud of this so here it is: in what has been a crazy semester, to have my supervising prof describe my course evals as "stratospheric" with a dash of "Bravo!" made my day. Off to course prep with a boost in confidence!
