I'm currently teaching an environmental philosophy and ethics course using J. Baird Callicott's book Earth's Insights and would like to know whether anyone has developed a set of study/discussion questions for the chapters of the book that I can provide to my students. Perhaps we can pool our questions and develop a study guide for this popular text to make available to others.

The Equine History Collective is looking for a social media liaison to assist with Twitter, Instagram, and EquineHistory.org. Social media experience is a must, experience with wordpress.com and wordpress.org a plus. This is a chance to be involved in the growing field of equine history, and interact with both scholars and the public.
