Spring has returned, and with it another edition of Clio, the History Division newsletter.
In this edition, division head Michael S, Sweeney has the results of a survey asking members whether the division should take over Journalism History as the journal of the division. Research chair Douglas Cumming draws on personal experience and his father’s files to illustrate how the practice of journalism also gives our students skills that are valuable in their general college education. You’ll also find an excerpt of the book The Black Newspaper and the Chosen Nation by Benjamin Fagan of Auburn University.
And if you need a check on the paper call for the annual convention, you’ll find it in Clio as well.
