Clio is the muse of history and my name is Mark R. Stoneman, long an adjunct professor and now also editor at the German Historical Institute in Washington, DC (GHI). This blog contains occasional pieces about history in the academy, the classroom, current events, everyday life, popular culture, my own research, and whatever else historical comes to mind.
UPDATE: I have decided no longer to maintain this blog and write instead from STONEMAN’S CORNER at markstoneman.com. I will nonetheless continue to leave this blog open to the public for the foreseeable future.
Any advertising you see on this blog is from WordPress.com. I exercise no control over the ads and receive no revenue from them. I am paying to keep Stoneman’s Corner free of ads, but I can’t afford to to that here, too.
