An update on this week’s Blog Post Assignment:
- INSTEAD of the syllabus’s listed assignment for the blog post, please compose a short outline of the main points of our Cohen readings for this week. (We’re reversing this week and last week’s blog post assignments.)
- Suggestion: Do you blog post ahead of Wednesday’s class. This will help you prep for our reading discussion and also leave you plenty of time for Friday’s written 1-page Topic Assignment (due in 2 hard copies at the start of class–see syllabus.)

A check-in after last Friday’s digital workshop:
- You should have your domains set up along with a subdomain for your HIST 297 course blog and have it all working by this Wednesday (9/5).
- Stuck? Tech difficulties? Make an appointment (or drop in) today at the Digital Knowledge Center for help.
Is it ready? Send your HIST 297 blog address to your professor (sfernseb [at] umw.edu).
Our first blog post — self-intro’s with three images from Flickr Commons image archives — is due by the start of class on Friday. Need help citing images? See this link (available among others at our Resources page!)
