Great News! McKeon will participate in our first Collective Reading. Details to come.

Great News! I've contacted Johns Hopkins University Press, and they are helping us set up our first Collective Reading of Michael McKeon's Secret History of Domesticity in the next month or so. McKeon has agreed to participate, though I still need to arrange the timing and other details. I'll post additional information as it comes in. Thanks to Kathy Alexander at JHUP for helping expedite this.

Thanks to all of you for your suggestions, and we'll see if we can start scheduling additional events once we see how this works out. If you have additional books or events you'd like to suggest, please send them along.

This looks like a very promising event, and I hope it will become the first in a series of online discussions of contemporary scholarship.

Best wishes,

DM
