This does not surprise historians. Neither "Christian" nor "Muslim" are ethnicities, much less "races." Neither Christianity nor Islam belongs to East or West (whatever they may be). Time to stop divided human beings into neat - and opposed - categories.

Palimpsested paper! 12th c. Goes to show that the Abbasids probably didn’t adopt paper over parchment for its unfalsifiability: medieval Middle Easterners didn’t think paper was resistant to erasure. ⁦

The star-cross’d lovers of your unwritten romance novel are two anagrams of your full name: Ballerine Chance and Lance Hibernacle.

It's not just that the current conditions mark an unsustainable future; they mark a system that has already failed and is in the process of even more dramatically failing the students as much as the faculty who shld be at the core of a university's function.

Taught Intro to Old English this morning, and we talked about Notre Dame a bit. I brought a copy of the OE poem The Ruin, and we read it and discussed the politics of memory, loss, and grief: who gets remembered, who gets grieved.

There’s an amor fati about UNESCO world heritage sites. Beneath Monticello glittering in the sun this morning, this tile. You know. What do we do, when we love art, bury history, when it has been part of our landscape. Damn a congresswoman. Talk about labor. Cry, scream, shrug.

Notre Dame on fire is heartbreaking ... just as the intentional destruction of cultural heritage sites in the Middle East was a few years ago. did a story on how helped bring that destruction to the world's attention.

contrary to popular believe, it IS possible to mourn the notre dame and think critically about the constant and ongoing loss of major historic artifacts in places like iraq and syria at the same time

I study the Middle Ages in part because I want to believe that, collectively, we can produce something of meaning that will endure long after we are gone. To see a symbol of that like Notre Dame go up in flames is so profoundly sad.

This is devastating. I was going to see Notre Dame in person, at long last, this coming year. What a loss for medievalists, and Paris, and all of us.

Cool, yes. Bring them all to my house for coffee and biscuits. Hospitality to those in need is the bedrock of humanity.
