Two quick notes of congratulations this morning. 

First, to Sharon Carson, Gayatri Devi, and Cigdem Pala for their special issue of North Dakota Quarterly on Transnationalism (volume 84.1/2) being recognized as a notable issue by the 2018 Best American Essays editors. Special recognition goes to Sharon Carson, Shawn Boyd, and Kate Sweney, who shepherded Volume 84.1/2 through production.  You can read excerpts from the volume here and I’ll do what I can over the next few weeks to make the entire volume available.


Second, to Shawn Graham and his team for their ODATE project which received the 2019 award for Excellence in Digital Archaeology from the Archaeological Institute of America. I know that the ODATE digital archaeology textbook is still in beta, but here’s a link to it.

Shawn is among the most remarkable practitioners of digital archaeology and I have been privileged to collaborate with him on one of his other great projects, Epoiesen, which we publish an annual print version with The Digital Press


  1. Thanks Bill! It’s been great to collaborate with, and learn from, you too!
