PhDinHistory blog

Have you been following the PhDinHistory story? Short version: PhDinHistory was a terrific blog by an anonymous graduate student that included detailed, quantitative analysis of gender disparities within the field of history. (There were other interesting things as well.) Then the author pulled the blog when he feared being disclosed. Now the blog is back, with identification. It's here, with a post on why anonymous blogging might not work. When the blog was pulled initially, Dan Cohen wrote an interesting article on anonymity and blogging. It's here.

As a complete aside, even though there seem to be more English bloggers out there, I think the historians are better at it.
