What’s Up, Doc?

It’s a tradition here at History in the Margins that I kick off the year with a post about what I expect to work on and think about over the coming year. I’ve always thought of it as the blog equivalent of the coming attractions at a movie theater—minus the popcorn. (I realize this is a dangerous position. Not everyone loves watching the trailers for future movies. I do.)

This year I have no coming attractions to offer you, because at some level I have no idea what I’m going to do next.

I will still be writing, thinking and, hopefully, talking about Nazi Germany and women journalists as the publication date for The Dragon from Chicago draws near. (August 6!). Beyond that, I expect to flail around without direction: reading widely* and following rabbit holes wherever they take me. No musts or shoulds allowed. Quite frankly, I’m looking forward to it—and I plan to take you with me.

Here’s to a New Year full of historical discoveries and lots of good books for us all.

*And randomly. The To-Be-Read piles are tall and varied. At the moment I’m reading books about the early movie industry, women in medieval Europe, and camouflage in World War II. Who know where they will lead me?
