Curriculum Development

Hello all, 

New Jersey just passed a law that will require the teaching of the various contributions of Homosexuals and Persons with Disabiltiies in the United States as part of the history curriculum.  I have to be honest, I am hoping some of my colleagues here at H-Net would know of valuable resources that house and/or archive such individuals.  Any information you have would be appreciated.  

Thank you all,

UFO Day

As a scholar who enjoys digging into the vast corners of the web, I often come across content that is relevant to H-Celebration. Although not academic in origin, relevant posts could inspire studies that look into the nature and practice of celebration. 

Today, July 2, is World UFO Day, as noted by Wisconsin Frights: http://www.wisconsinfrights.com/world-ufo-day/ The celebration marks the anniversary of the UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico.
