HIstorians in the news: Ian Mosby

Historian Ian Mosby is all over the headlines (Star, CBC News) as the press jumps on the very disturbing story he has uncovered about federal government scientists using aboriginal kids as unwitting research subjects on ... the effects of starvation.

Mosby published the research behind the story in the journal Histoire sociale-Social History and announced it on his food history blog.  Great to see it making the jump from scholarly research to public policy discussion.
