I am trying to unwind from the Fall 2014 semester. I have even pressed hold on prepping for the Spring 2015 semester (indeed, most of the PDF readings for “Gender, Race and the Urban Space,” my first graduate course, and “Antebellum America,” a new undergraduate course, are done). Still, I couldn’t help sharing the jpeg for the cover of my upcoming book, Remember Me to Miss Louisa: Black and White Intimacies in Antebellum America. The designer for Northern Illinois University Press did a great job.
As soon as I get a link to the publisher’s site and a bookseller’s website, I’ll link it. There is an ISBN number, which, along with the contract, makes this real. I have even launched a website – sharonygreen.com – via wordpress for promotional purposes. I hope to soon learn how to make it look more like a website and less like a blog, however. I’d rather save the blogging for this site, which typically focuses on the technology I use in teaching. Or save it for flip-teaching sites created for my “The Nineteenth Century City” and race and urban space undergraduate courses.
Okay, so here’s my first New Year’s Resolution: Blog in one place. Or two. I think.Too much to think about for now. Rest is the operative word. For now, see you on the other side of 2015. Happy holidays and Roll Tide!
