[Thread on Threads] Recently, the @chronicle published a piece attacking the public engagement of contemporary issues and politics by historians. After some consideration, I felt this needed a response...and why not in thread form" Let's talk about this. chronicle.com/article/The-Ri…
In this ironically pedantic editorial accusing historians
public engagement as pedantic, Dr. Fallon makes a series of accusations that are serious enough to warrant explanation and discussion. I am a relative newcomer to the historical thread phenomenon, but am invested.
So, I will try to respond to some of points raised in the Chronicle piece, speaking from my experience but also (I hope) capturing the experiences and motivations of some of the more prolific Historic Threaders. #twitterstorians
