Re: Logevall and Osgood, "Why Did We Stop Teaching Political History?"

I wonder whether the explanation for this isn't similar to the explanation for the decline in diplomatic history: previously underrepresented subfields finally getting faculty lines in a zero-sum context. At some places, I am aware, once previously underrepresented areas gained a critical mass, they established a kind of disciplinary hegemony that was openly hostile to the study of dead white males. I say this not with resentment, merely sadness that people sometimes find it difficult to share a tent.
