Trump Transition in Historical Perspective: Draft Annotated Bibliographies

On behalf of the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative, I'm posting the first fruits of our invitation to environmental and other historians, two annotated bibliographies on environmental transitions resembling the current one under Trump.   These are first drafts; please feel free to nominate your own or others' scholarship to be added.

March was National Nutrition Month!

This week, the American Academy of Peditrics sent out an advertising blast, alerting all of us pediatricians that we can pay for a variety of books and online courses to improve our knowledge about obesity, oral health, and food allergies in children. I'm not particularly interested in giving them (more) money at this point in my training, but if you're anything like me, you probably grasp any opportunity to talk about your interest in the history of nutrition. I wish the AAP had sent out their email earlier.
