Have thoughts about the intersection between the Civil War and current events? Interested in writing for the public? Consider pitching a post to Muster, http://journalofthecivilwarera.org/category/blog/. The blog is affiliated with The Journal of the Civil War Era, published by the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and the Richards Civil War Center at Penn State.
I would appreciate suggestions for readings and topics, or entire syllabi, for a second-year university course on Contemporary Judaism to be taught this fall. From prior experience, students understand "contemporary" as "current", so the course needs to engage with live issues.
