Thanks Paul, and thanks all. I will be putting the list together and adding it to the H-AMSTDY resources by the end of June (so very soon). It will be an editable and evolving collection so additions can be made.
Welcome to H-Amstdy, a forum for research and teaching in the field of American Studies, and for interdisciplinary or multi-disciplinary perspectives on culture. The network focuses on the cultures of North America and the United States, and offers an international perspective on the study of American culture.
Here you'll find CFP's, Discussions, New Book Announcements, and more. Read, subscribe, and post your own!
We're looking for contributions and editorial assistance on our new project, "Theorizing Trump." Please check out the call for those and other opportunities at H-Amstdy.

Thanks Patrick for getting this started, and good to see all this activity. I started a blog, The Public Classroom, which grows from a basic AmStudies impulse: bridging the world of scholarship and the public.
PubClassroom.com currently has an opening statement, http://pubclassroom.com/about/, and three sections; on political campaigns, on a sampling of popular culture (Halloween), and on big Values Questions. I welcome comments, and contributions, for this new venture in digital outreach.
I started a blog over a year ago and I have some content on it, but not enough to list it here. I bookmarked many of the blogs that are listed in the posts on this site. They are impressive. Moving forward, I ideally would like to have more access to the research sources that I was using when I started blogging. I also need to improve the graphic content and technical features. I do think that blogs are beneficial for the work we do in American studies, so I want to return to this practice.
Matthew Pratt Guterl is an historian of race and nation in the Americas and deeply invested in public humanities. Matt has a great mind, a compassionate heart, and beautifully accessible prose. He is shamefully prolific. His blog can be found at http://matthewprattguterl.com/. It is a must read.
Read Richard John's book, "Network Nation: Inventing American Telecommunications." John is at Columbia University and is usually quite willing to help people out with questions.
You can also contact me if you like, firstname.lastname@example.org - curator at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum.
Hi. My research is in the social history of letter writing and postal history. I found a great book by Catherine Golden called "Posting It." It might have some useful notes that could direct you to other sources. Hope that helps.
A good place to start is Raymond Williams's keywords, under Communication.
Dear B. Rahimi,
I suggest you take a look at the Society for the History of Technology website at http://www.historyoftechnology.org/. You should be able to get a start by looking at the page for "Resources for Students, Researchers & Teachers."
