More Noted Things

At the AHA convention in San Diego, a group of twittering historians ("twitterstorians"!) will gather at Dussini on Friday at 7:00 p.m. pdt. There, Katrina Gulliver will announce the winners of the Cliopatria Awards, 2009. They'll be announced online here at Cliopatria shortly thereafter.

The argument in Rob Townsend's"A Grim Year on the Academic Job Market for Historians," Perspectives, January, that the labor crisis in academic history is caused by an oversupply of newly minted doctors is challenged in Marc Bousquet,"At the AHA: Huh?" Brainstorm, 6 January.

Adam Kirsch,"Enlightenment, Yes!" Tablet, 5 January, reviews Zeev Sternhell's The Anti-Enlightenment Tradition.

Wendy Doniger,"India's Sacred Extremes," TLS, 6 January, reviews William Dalrymple's Nine Lives: In Search of the Sacred in Modern India.

Daniel Taylor ,"For the Love of Wild Things," Books & Culture, 4 January, reviews"Wild Thing: Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska, Gill," an exhibit at London's Royal Academy of Arts.

Stephen Maughan,"And The Beat Goes On," Fine Books Magazine, January, tracks the warfare over Jack Kerouac's estate. Thanks to David Gary for the tip.

Finally, farewell to Margaret Garritsen deVries, an economic historian, and Ihor Sevcenko, a Byzantine and Slavic scholar.
