My blog posts revolve around my interests and vocation as a historian: the intersection of history and contemporary church life, the intersection of history and contemporary politics, serendipitous discoveries in archives or on research trips, publications and research projects, upcoming conferences, and speaking engagements.
I sometimes blog for two other organizations, the Canadian Baptist Historical Society and the Centre for Post-Christendom Studies.
The views expressed in these blogs represent the views of the authors, and not necessarily those of any organizations with which they are associated.
I frequently find surprising items in my trips to archives - items completely unrelated to my original research aims. Here is one example from a Canadian religious newspaper from 1934. We often think addressing "mental health" is a new phenomenon, but apparently not.
