Thanks to those who have posted their blogs and found me elsewhere to share your blogs. I'll get a list together.
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.

I'd like to suggest a blog by my colleague at Penn State Harrisburg, Megan McGee Yinger: The Lady Americanist http://sites.psu.edu/megmcgeeamst/
Thank you for putting together a list!
Yes, thanks for raising this.
In the UK, the Americas Collections at the British Library run this blog http://britishlibrary.typepad.co.uk/americas/index.html, which has recent contributions from Prof. Sarah Churchwell (on Gatsby), as well as regular notes by curators, which cover a range of topics as well as current events. But I'm not sure we can argue we have a sustained voice, just notes from trying to keep our heads above water!
US Studies Online, which is written by graduate students and early career scholars is also excellent http://usstudiesonline.com/
Thanks from me, too, Patrick!
I'm glad to be reminded about Ben Railton's blog and about the other projects mentioned in this discussion.
I have started my own blog (www.frankusbeck.net) about a year ago to document my research on American soldier blogs (milblogs) and related fields, such as PTSD, war narratives, and military history, but also Native American history and culture, and German-American relations and historical encounters.

I'm new to the field and I need help with some references.
I'm doing research about the changing telecommunication (telegraph, postage, etc) and transportation history from colonial to post-revolutionary history (particularly 19th century).
Could someone refer me to articles and books?
I would be grateful

In Texas it appears to be defined in the so-called "Regents Rules," specifically "Rule 31001: Faculty Appointments and Titles." This, in turn, refers to Texas Education Code Section 51.943 which does, in fact, discriminate between tenured and non-tenured faculty but contains no defining or authorizing language.

In one of the many online articles about the latest goings-on in Wisconsin regarding University budgets and the end of tenure, one person posted in the comments that Wisconsin was actually the only state where tenure was guaranteed by state law. Unfortunately, in all my surfing I lost sight of the shore and can no longer find the quote.
