Just joined today to support H-Net so an is in order. My Kentucky roots are still clinging to me as I live now in New Zealand with my husband in order to be with my elder daughter and her son. I work at on multiple projects, including and a place-based series of histories of New Zealand women in the 19th century. Also, taking on SAWH's newsletter as managing editor - currently an exuberant editor of National Council of Women of NZ newsletter, The Circular.

Here's a fun article transcribed from a NZ newspaper in 1885: "The Model Wife is Dead." It works better when read aloud and a little tipsy... as if with friends at a pub hollingsworth.wordpress.com/20

Important article on the threats and harassment faced by LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and other vulnerable communities (via @chanda ):
