November 22, 2023: Thankful for Scholarly Communities: 9 Online Conference

[For this year’s Thanksgiving series, I wanted to express thanks for a handful of opportunities I’ve had to connect with scholarly communities this Fall. Leading up to a special tribute to my two most important scholarly influences!]

As I’ve highlighted many times in this space, my current book project focuses on one of my favorite stories from American history: that of the Celestials baseball team and their tragic yet triumphant final game in 1881 San Francisco. As a result of that focus I’ve started to learn a good bit more about 19th century baseball, but there’s so much more for to explore, and so I was beyond excited to get to share my own thoughts and listen to many others at this fall’s 9 Online Virtual Baseball Conference. I also connected there with a wonderful high school educator, historian, and public scholar, Brian Sheehy from North Andover High School, with whom I look forward to many future collaborations around American history, sports histories, patriotism, and more. The best conferences offer both immediate inspiration and ongoing conversations, and I found both at 9 Online and look forward to finding (and writing here about!) further opportunities to connect to baseball and sports historians.

Next Thanks-giving tomorrow,


PS. Communities (or anything else) you’re thankful for this year?
