QUESTION: Radical History Graduate Programs

question / pregunta: 

This was a question brought up about two and a half years ago and I wish there had been more answers.

I am looking for radical history programs (particularly southern studies) and while of course I've done research and have some leads, it would be nice to have some tips from other people. Making the decision to go back to school is huge and looking at programs can feel overwhelming!

QUESTION: copyright

question / pregunta: 

I am working on reproducing some literature I am pretty sure only had one printing run in 1925. It is an epic poem by an anarchist author, and I am not selling any of the reproductions, just distributing them for a wider readership. How can I find out if it is under any copyright restrictions right now, and does the fact that I am an art student doing this for a school project help at all?

QUESTION: where would I find articles/essays describing exactly what blogs are (for a person in prison)?

question / pregunta: 

I'm looking for some articles and essays that talk about what blogs ARE (for a woman who has been in prison long enough to have missed the advent of blogs, myspace, facebook, etc, etc). I'm sending her Jenna's excellent "Zines are not Blogs," but I think the piece is geared more towards those who don't know what zines are, not for those who are totally clueless as to what a blog is.

The woman is reviewing a book on zines that sometimes compares them to blogs and it would be damn good if she knew what the hell a blog was. And, since there is no internet access in prison, I thought I would try to be helpful and send her some information to help her along.
