In a few hours I leave for Chicago, where I will be presenting a paper on Michael John Demiashkevich at the annual conference of the Organization of Educational Historians. This is my first time at an OEH conference. I would love to blog about it but will have to make sure that is OK. In any case, I will give you a “Chicago perspective” on something every day, be it conference proceedings, an education news update, or a topic I have been pondering.
My grandmother lived in Chicago her entire life, and I have been there many times since childhood. I won’t have much time for exploring, but on Saturday afternoon I will likely walk around, visit the Thorne Miniature Rooms, which I haven’t seen in many years, or go to the lake.
I am glad that an organization of educational historians exists. I look forward to this conference.
