Junto March Madness Round II Results, Sweet 16 Voting

JMM16Happy Friday, everybody! In the last round of voting, some of our polls were more well-behaved than others, readers. Read on for results, and the opening of Sweet 16 Voting.

Everything went as planned in our Atlantic World, Gender, and Economic and Social History brackets. In the American Revolution, however, the world turned upside down, and Lemisch edged out Freeman. In the History of Ideas, Gordon Wood lost his way against Grasso. In Historiography/Theory, Rodgers lost to Saunt, and in Native American History, Richter took Merrell captive. In Slavery and Race Formation, O’Malley continued to beat the higher seed, and defeated Brown. Here are your results:

  1. Karla says:

    This poll is puerile and embarrassing. The categories are also a total mush.

  2. cfs says:

    William and Mary Quarterly vs. Journal of American History. Interesting how this is turning out. But on reflection, one should not be surprised at the role of these iconic journals in the field.
