This discussion centres on Europe but is applicable to other countries, such as Canada. Unfortunate that these sorts of discussions don’t occur here. Kudos to Crooked Timber, one of the best blogs on politics and economics on the net.
One thing that I do want to continue to blog about is the books that I am currently reading.
Ian Wei, Intellectual Culture in Medieval Paris: Theologians and the University, c.1100-1330. Cambridge University Press, 2012.
One of my favorite subjects in grad school was medieval history, thanks to Dr. K.Fianu. I was, and still am, quite interested in the emergence of various corporate entities such as towns and universities, and how these entities emerged to form such powerful and long lasting intrusions into human cultures and our societies. Ian Wei focuses on the emergence of Paris University and its contribution to early European intellectual history. I’m not done yet but will give more details about this fascinating subject!
okay…. bummer… i thought it would embed the video but this does work if you click the link.
Not very responsive when using my iPad. I cannot upload videos and videos just didn’t work at all. It is possible the issue is Safari. Useable in a pinch, but not for site management.
So I am sick and decided that it was about time that I got WordPress set up here at idonthaveacoolname.
