Those of you who read The Way of Improvement Leads Home may remember a post I did this past weekend about wandering the book exhibit at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association. In that post I mentioned that I had run into the new politics editor at TheAtlantic.Com, but I was unable to mention his name until a formal announcement was made.
I am now happy to report that the new politics editor at TheAtlantic.Com is Yoni Appelbaum. I met Yoni a few years ago in Columbia, South Carolina when we both sat on a panel (with Chris Cantwell and Beth Pardoe) on historians and the digital turn. The occasion was the biennial meeting of the now-defunct Historical Society. A few years ago I also blogged about Yoni’s rise from “blog commentator” to Atlantic correspondent. You can also see him in action here.
If you’re a historian who’d like to share scholarly work with a general audience? Track me down at #AHA2015 – I’d love to help you do that.
