Today, a History Dept. called to offer me a position that begins in the fall. More details to come, but this is how I feel right now:
This is one reason I don’t like the question: “How would you describe what *type* of historian you are?” I am whatever *type* of historian is needed to explore my research questions/interests. I don’t like to box myself in overly-determined categories.
It’s weird to think that my first psychology courses were as a doctoral student in social studies education and now I’m trying to position myself as a prominent historian of psychology in a number of articles I’m writing. It’s impossible to know where life will take you, I guess!
