Scholar as Citizen is a blogging counterpart of the www.williamcronon.net website where Bill Cronon reflects on the public practice of history and the ways in which academic scholarship in his chosen fields of history, geography, and environmental studies can offer useful perspectives on contemporary political debates. His goal is not just to offer particular historical and geographical insights into present-day discussions and controversies, but also to reflect on ways that scholarly methods and habits of mind can help us ask better questions and thereby offer constructive approaches for better understanding why current events unfold as they do.
