Welcome to HIST 254, Spring 2015

This is the location where we will be posting our thoughts on the blog. Make sure to create a descriptive yet enticing title, grab your readers’ attention in the first sentences, and use a professional voice in your writing. You must select the category for our course and add appropriate tags (e.g. author name, topic of the post (e.g. industrial revolution, etc.), title of document(s) read, etc.). Check current tags to see if someone else has already used a similar tag. Aim for consistency in tagging. That is, if there are existing tags for “revolution” do not add “revolutions.” This defeats the purpose of tagging.
