If you’ve been reading for the last week, you’ve heard from the various panelists at our session at Pepperdine University on September 26th.
Today, at the Religion in American History blog, I wrap up those posts, link to several others, and direct people to collections of tweets from the program.
So, if you’ve been waiting to comment or ask questions of the whole panel, this is your chance.
Again, the wrap-up is here.
Continuing our series on Christian Historians and Social Media (with earlier installments here and here), today Chris Gehrz of Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota shares his ideas. (And yes, he does count as a neighbor in the Twin Cities.)
Chris shares his experience of running 4 separate blogs (he also apparently keeps another 1 or 2 on the side). Thus, he finds different objectives achieved with:
1. A Course Blog
2. A Department Blog
3. A Research Project Blog
4. And, a Personal Blog
All of his reflections are here, at “The Pietist Schoolman.”
And, let me add a voice that you should make “The Pietist Schoolman” a regular part of your internet intake.
As promised yesterday, we are rolling out our presentations from the “Christian Historians and Social Media” Panel from the Conference on Faith and History last week.
Today’s entry comes from John Fea, professor of History at Messiah College.
John took to the podium to answer 4 questions:
1. How did I begin blogging?
2. Platform Blogging [How is blogging a platform?]
3. My Philosophy of Blogging
4. Is Blogging Scholarship?
