Re: Current debate on the changes to AP world history

I'm going to interpret Eric's invitation to discuss the APWH controversy broadly. I wasn't at the reading, but I saw the video (LOL).

I'm very interested to hear from those who were at the Reading about any noteworthy conversations or observations that happened outside of the Open Forum, which seems to have generated more heat than light.

I also recognize that the conversation has moved on since then.

Reminder: CFP 'Monarchy and Modernity, 1500-1945', University of Cambridge, 8-9 January 2019

The conference announced on the cfp below was originally designed for Europeanists, but was opened up to all world areas following multiple requests by non-Europeanists to participate. The cfp has therefore been revised and the deadline extended to August 15, 2018. Please note that all proposals previously submitted remain valid and, where applicable, accepted.
