As this is the first full week of classes, thankfully, the reading list is light. So, without further ado:
History and Theory
Gallant, Thomas. “Long Time Coming, Long Time Gone: The Past, Present and Future of Social History.” Historein 12 (2012): 10-20.
Today marks the last day of the first week of school (okay, there were only two school days, but I’m still counting it!). As my schedule stands right now, I have class five days a week (haven’t done that since high school…) and I’m taking these classes: Arabic, French, History and Theory, Research Seminar in Modern European History, and Historical Scholarship of the Middle East – Colonial Period.
The next few weeks should really see a drastic pick-up in my posts as I plan to provide a list of all readings for the upcoming week and summarize all readings at the end of the week in the form of two blog posts. I’ll also try and post something entertaining as well, but we’ll see. If we have a particularly interesting class discussion, I plan to post that, too.
Now, on to the weekend.
Is there anything specific you’d like to hear/know about? Has anyone else experienced a beginning in the last couple weeks or has one coming up?
