Andrea Eidinger over at Unwritten Histories has released her list of “Best New Articles from September 2017.” I’ve overjoyed by the fact that my “Archival Photographs in Perspective: Indian Residential School Images of Health” article is included on the best new articles list.
Go check out the rest of Andrea’s article recommendations for the past month, there are a number of really interesting and must read Canadian history articles on the list.
Jessica Knapp of Canada’s History and I are organizing a Canada wide Wikipedia edit-a-thon with a focus on editing Canadian History content. Join us on October 18, 2017 at a regional site or virtually to improve Canadian History content on Wikipedia!
Want to know more? Check out our “Hacking Histories” blog post on Unwritten Histories. The post explains the details of the event, how you can participate, and answers some of the common Wikipedia questions.
A huge thank you to Andrea Eidinger for her willingness to host this post and for her support of this event.
I am extremly greatful for the work that Andrea Eidinger does through her site and delighted to have been asked to particiapte in her interview series. I talk about my history roots, my love for public history, and how I use a public history approach to my archives work.
Andrea has been wonderfully consistent in posting new content and typically maintains a schedule of a new blog post on Tuesday and a Canadian history roundup post on Sunday which highlights other Canadian history content online.
I commend anyone who is able to maintain that type of schedule for numerous months and still come out with interesting and insightful content. I also love the name of her blog and the implications of exposing histories and parts of historical practice that are not commonly discussed.
