What We’re Reading: February 3, 2011 Edition

AHA Staff | Feb 3, 2011

Google Art ProjectThere are only a few days left to register for Humanities Advocacy Day, put on by the National Humanities Alliance. Consider joining in to lobby for history programs on Capitol Hill. In other news, a new U.S. History AP course is a year away, the National Archives has joined Foursquare, and Google presents a new “street view” of art museums. If you’re hungry for history this month you may be interested in a group of D.C. historians who meet to discuss decades old recipes, and a journalist who tried to eat like it was 1912. We also bring you two Civil War related articles on myths and 150th anniversary events.  Finally, check out a site on Middle East teaching resources and a pocket gentleman’s guide from 1870.
