It’s been awful quiet here recently due to some big news on the personal front: a cross-country move and a new (non-academic) job while I finish work on the dissertation.
There are several posts planned with research updates, as well as some neat documentary finds. In the immediate future, I am excited to present ongoing research at the Northern Great Plains History Conference in Grand Forks, ND this October. My good friend and colleague Jesse Pyles and I are presenting together on a panel that examines Britain’s military alliances in two case studies: the Portuguese Expeditionary Corps in WWI and, of course, the Hessians in the American War of Independence. I look forward to sharing details about the conference after I return!
