Labs Are for the Humanities, Too

Interesting report on a two-day conference at the National Endowment for the Humanities headquarters entitled “The Humanities Laboratory: Discussions of New Campus Models,” attended by representatives from Arizona State University, the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago:

Edited Collection on Imperialism: Expressions of Interest in Chapter Contributions

Dear Colleagues,

We are looking to revisit some of the ideas of formal and informal imperialism and of collaboration that run through and have been developed from the classic essay by John Gallagher and Ronald Robinson ‘The Imperialism of Free Trade’ (1953).  In particular, we are looking at ways in which their ideas might be helpfully developed in understanding contemporary economies.

Origins of the Holocaust in Lithuania

Greetings from Lithuania!

I share an article which I published at Dovid Katz's website DefendingHistory.com, "How Did Lithuanians Wrong Litvaks?"
