About this blog

This blog is designed to be part of the Masters Seminar in History at Dalhousie University. Although all MA students are required to complete the seminar as History 5800, it is open to all graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty at Dalhousie University. The online discussion is open to anyone with a google account. The blog will contain a mixture of required reading, commentary and suggestions for discussion, as well as updates concerning the seminar.

I plan to post the course syllabus in August. In the meantime, here are some interesting links for historians and writers:
Link to History Links
Strunk and White, The Elements of Style
Orwell, Politics and the English Language
Canadian Historical Association
American Historical Association
Do History
Christopher Moore
New York Review of Books
The New Yorker
Fallacy Files
