We’ve Made History – 1 Year in the Blogosphere!

Happy Blogoversary Historians! 

The UST History Department entered the blogosphere one year ago! Its been an amazing year and we’re so delighted to collaborate with you on all things history. Over the past twelve months, we’ve engaged with history outside of the classroom on multiple levels:

Most importantly, the blog has only reinforced our belief that history surrounds us in our daily lives. Understanding the past makes us better in the present! And while we officially launched this blog a year ago, our inspiration came much earlier when one of our students from our intro-level courses showed us how the lessons of history can be applied to so many different circumstances. Make sure to check out her story of traveling to the former African slave trading post Elmina Castle here and tell us your story of how history informs your life on on campus and beyond.
