[This week marks the beginning of a new semester, and so as always I wanted to preview classes I’m teaching, this time through individual authors and texts I’m excited to be including on this syllabi. Leading up to this special weekend update on my own newest book project!]
So when I
planned a placeholder post here for an update on Two
Sandlots: Baseball, Bigotry, and the Battle for America, I will admit
to having had some hopes that there’d be news about a possible home for that manuscript.
But there’s not yet, and so I’ll just say instead that I would really love any
ideas, leads, connections, etc. about places I might consider submitting a
project that is a significant part sports history (and I can lean into that
focus even more fully if it fits the home), but with connections to histories
of immigration, diversity, prejudice, and American identity as well. This Saturday
Evening Post column illustrates
a bit of what makes these interconnected stories so unique and important, and I’d
love the chance to share them widely so let me know (here or by email) if you have thoughts,
series starts Monday,
do you think? Spring semester authors, texts, classes, or other work to share?
