Blogging and a course on witch trials

Like my fiction blog, Sillyverse, this blog has been mostly inactive for a few years. Life, and death, got in the way. And just as I’ve resumed Sillyverse with a new story, so I’m restarting Sillyhistory.

Next week, I start teaching an online course called Burn the Witch! Witches and Witch-Hunting in Early Modern Europe through the Cambridge (Mass.) Center for Adult Education (CCAE). Because it’s online, you don’t need to live near Cambridge to enroll (although I suspect if you live outside the U.S., this really won’t work well). And yes, it does have open spaces for people. You can check it out here. If you’re interested, consider enrolling!

I’m going to use this blog once again as something of a sidecar to my courses, among other things. So expect to see here articles on subjects related to what I’m teaching. I expect to post weekly.

Long live history!
