Two doctoral students in the History Department at the University of Kentucky, Dara Vance and Cody Foster, have started a podcast series called "Long Story Short: A Brief History of History" that features UK historians reflecting on and summarizing fascinating stories in history. The target audience is local, regional and global audiences as well as, in particular, 14-19 year old youth who might be interested in learning more about history and historical topics.
The Comics Arts Conference is now accepting 100 to 200 word abstracts for papers, presentations, panels, and poster sessions taking a critical or historical perspective on comics (juxtaposed images in sequence) for a meeting of scholars and professionals at Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA, July 21-24, 2016. We seek proposals from a broad range of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives and welcome the participation of academic and independent scholars.

These losses were mediated through the hopeful belief on human rationality, science and progress.
