It’s been a quiet week for blogging (and for reading my blog!), but I couldn’t resist checking in with my dedicated readers down the stretch run of the calendar year.
(And just so you know, I did start a number of blog posts and read over a file full of drafts this past week and was tempted yesterday to finish a blog titled “Teaching Graduate Historiography”. It’ll appear next week.)
In the meantime, I’ll offer up a little list of quick hits and varia to keep my readers happy and busy over the weekend.
- The relocation of Roma Tomb 313 at Corinth. Video!
- Lawrence of Arabia as archaeologist. (Not to be confused with Lawrence of Euphoria.)
- The sad state of the monastery of Ay. Aberkios.
- The Christmas of 1923 (or lack thereof) in Greece.
- A pretty fly simulation of the relationship between the Obelisk of Montecitori and the Ara Pacis.
- Peter Shultz and Spencer Pope on the Chryselephantine Doors of the Parthenon.
- Greece’s brain drain.
- The Economist looks at museums.
- A Pdf/Powerpointer summarizing some points from the University of Pennsylvania’s recent study of their Coursera MOOCs.
- Peer review is a tool.
- Millinerd’s 10th Christmas. Makes me feel like a spring chicken.
- On the other hand, the blog is dead. Long live the blog.
- What I’m reading: Vivek Chibber, Postcolonial Theory and the Specter of Capital. Verso 2013.
- What I’m listening to: Wooden Shjips, Back to Land; Waxahatchee, Cerulean Salt.
