    I just listened to your first episode, and I wanted to commend you on such an important effort!

    I am now in my fourth year of running the Writing History at Yale colloquium, where we discuss engaging historical writing, but I have also been increasingly interested in how to discuss the mechanics of graduate school and history research and writing–and to break these conversations out of campus-based communities, so insights can be shared.

    Do you think there is space for an H-Net list on Writing History — more on engaging writing (a la creative nonfiction) than mechanics of teaching and doing historical writing, but with space for both? Martha Hodes, Marni Sandweiss, Tiya Miles, James Goodman, Bruce Dorsey, and Annette Gordon-Reed, and Scott Reynolds Nelson were on a great panel at the American Studies Association this year, discussing innovative narratives, and I contacted the Past Tense group out in California about future exchanges as well.

    I look forward to more episodes — now to add to that RSS feeder…

    Y’know, it’d help if you would provide single links to each episode. I don’t want to have to subscribe to hear one show.
