Re: What have you done this semester?

I am retiring next month after 22 years of teaching early American history, the history of childhood, and southern women's history at Rhodes College in Memphis.  I look forward to more time to read, write, walk, travel, laugh and enjoy the many cultural events in Memphis.  Still plan to see you all at SHA and SAWH events!

What have you done this semester?

Friends and colleagues,

As we wind down this semester, please take a few minutes to let us know what you have been doing. Have you had a class project go especially well? Have you uncovered something interesting in your research? Are you thinking about how to revise your courses for next semester?

Share with us so we can all raise each other.


Co-Editor, H-SAWH
