Since it was founded back in December of 2012, The Junto has had a powerfully transformative—indeed, a creatively disruptive—effect on the early American blogosphere. But lately, we’ve started to wonder, why stop there?
We may not have shelves cluttered with Bancroft prizes, and we may not be invited on speaking tours or onto the op-ed pages of major papers, but the Juntoists are graduate students and early career academics on the front line of teaching American history to university students across two continents. Some of us do a pretty mean line in bow-ties, too.
If anyone can bring the entire span of early American history to a bunch of folks sitting around in their pajamas at home, while leaving no stone unturned and no subfield maligned, in a series of forty-minute video lectures and automated multiple-choice quizzes . . . well, isn’t it us? So, without further ado, let me introduce you to JuntoX. Registration opening soon.
