My message to NM @ghost_of_pushwood

He's very active in his own way, just ask his right hand.

I think it was because he started using all that foreign talk (BBW's on the board now!).

Eric Hobsbawm disagrees and what he doesn't know about the topic isn't worth knowing.

@Ziryab, what does Hobsbawm disagree with?

ghost_of_pushwood

Whatever it is, I'm for it!

ghost_of_pushwood

I'd love to not know stuff that isn't worth knowing.

@Ziryab, I didn’t see that. And yes, I agree with Hobsbawm. My MA work focused on 19th Century France (1815-1859), so I read quite a bit of Hobsbawm.

I have two of his books, recently added to my shelf. He seems worth reading. And the book next to me seems to affirm that the Industrial Revolution was both industrial and a revolution. Also that it served imperialism.

My work in school focused on North America, mostly the US and with significant attention towards matters of race, especially American Indian history, literature, and culture. Naturally, studies of European imperialism are integral to that. Now, however, I'm teaching history of technology, so I've been revisiting and beefing up the work I did on Europe and Asia as an undergraduate (before Uncle Ron was reelected).

Nicholas Appert came up in yesterday's lecture, as did Napoleon.

1. I have not heard of this

2. I wouldn't put it past people to pull such a stunt

3. this is not the proper venue for such complaints/observations, since any discussion of cheating usually gets a stern warning to do so in the cheating group.

are you saying you needed to read multiple books to confirm what we learned in history class?
