Hi, folks... I just updated my website, and in addition to adding a page about my upcoming Star Trek publications, I've also added a new section containing a lot of the history papers I wrote in college.  I'm rather proud of some of them, while others contain or discuss ideas and aspects of world history that I think are worth sharing.

I'm a bit hesitant to mention this, since I'm sure some of you will rake my ideas over the coals, ;) but there they are for your perusal, and with luck they'll generate a little more historical discussion around here.

Nobody who majors or minors in history can get by without writing a paper that has 'peculiar institution' in the title. :lol:.

Thanks for these! I'll definitely take a read...

You are brave to put your publications--nonpublished ones--on the net!

They look interesting though and congrats on getting published! :alien:  :alien:  :alien:

Well, it's an interesting phrase.  But you have a point -- in reviewing these papers, I discovered that I did kind of adopt the jargon of historians.  I came across a few words in these papers that I've since forgotten I knew.  (And I've already forgotten them again, so I can't mention any examples.)
