Last week of classes
And that means grading.
But the research projects for the semester are finally concluded, for which I’m thankful.
New posts will be on the way, including a summary of the Performances of Peace conference that I just returned from last week.
And given a particular book review of our Marlborough book that will remain semi-anonymous, this summer must be the summer of destroying Winston Churchill’s biography of the Duke. I didn’t think it was necessary, but apparently it is. Unfortunately I’m too impatient for Max Planck’s constant to take effect: “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.” Maybe I’m tilting at windmills, but then English accounts of the war could use a bit more of the ‘windmill perspective.’
What else is coming up on the blog, you ask?
- More on note-taking, with Devonthink Pro Office and Scrivener
- More on battle
- Martial music
- Recent publications
- Playing around with basic textual analysis
- Random quotes and visualizations
SMHBLOG blog posts will include:
- Review of a iPad app on the battle of the Bulge
- The challenge of narrating war-years
- The Ostwald Review Index
- Other stuff I can’t remember right now.
But for now, gotta grade.
