Historians@Work focuses on the journeys the community of historians at Marquette take in the name of research, broadly defined.

Some of these will be actual, physical journeys, to archives, to conferences, to places strange and familiar to our readers. Others will be intellectual, as we learn about our world and ourselves through our research.

Still others will be practical, even prosaic, as we reflect on the process of revising books and articles for publication, of organizing conferences, of strategizing research arcs.

Teaching will certainly appear from time to time—there is no firewall between the classroom and the archive—and service responsibilities to our university and professional communities will make the occasional appearance.

But our primary focus will be on the places and ideas and yes, adventures, that we encounter scrounging through archives, networking with our colleagues, and even at our computers. Welcome.

Jim Marten, Editor
