Next fall semester we're offering some interesting courses of note. Dr. Schaeper is offering a special topics course in European History, Dictatorships and Democracy. That is certainly a topic of some relevancy. Dr. Robbins is offering History 401: Colonial American History, always a fascinating topic especially during an election year as politicians evoke America's origin story. Professor Dalton's Modern China class will be interesting, especially given the role China plays on the world stage.

We're back at the SBU Cemetery project. It's a work in progress that has been somewhat hampered by the weather. We finally got something resembling a nice day and headed up to the cemetery to plot locations. Next week we're talking about big data, maps, and, time allowing, georeferencing.
This summer we're expanding our online courses.

Payne, History 207: Sports in American Society
Payne, History 475: World War II
