Strom publishes new book on how to perform effective research

The Agricultural History Society recently published a new book written by history professor Claire Strom and Annabel Tudor ’11 MLS entitled, Using Diverse Primary Resources to Research US History: Essays from the Agricultural History Society. The book is a collection of essays by notable scholars aimed at helping undergraduates learn how to effectively use different sources—such as plants, buildings, monuments, and recipes—in their history research.

In addition to being co-editor, Strom also contributed an article entitled, “All the News that’s Fit to Print? Understanding the Role of Newspapers in Historical Research.” All profits from the book will go to the Agricultural History Society’s Centennial Campaign.
