Summer Blogging: Borealia on Acadia

Even amid the longterm decline or relative decline of blogging as a cultural and intellectual force, summer has tended to be the doldrums for history blogging in general.

A lively exception is currently being created by Borealia's series on Acadian history, where a whole lot of  research is being reported, mostly in advance of formal scholarly publications that may eventually appear.  Kudos to Anne Marie Lane Jonah, Elizabeth Mancke, Stephanie Pettigrew and the others engaged in these original and interdisciplinary collaborations.  I'm still reading them, and there may be more to come.

Update, August 7:  Should note that Acadiensis and Unwritten Histories are also participating in this project
