Genius historians

Okay, I do get a little frisson when email comes in from the MacArthur Foundation. The rational mind knows they are not about to tell me they are giving me one of those fabled Genius Grants and vast amounts of no-strings money.  But one dreams for a moment.

It's a media release about two historians who did just get McArthur Genius Grants:  Pamela Long, historian of science and technology, and Tara Zahra, historian of European childhoods.  And I'm really pleased for them. Really.
