Welcome to the Blogosphere: History and the Law

A hearty welcome to the blogosphere to History and the Law, the brainchild of Rohit De, a legal historian of South Asia and the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for History and Economics at the University of Cambridge, and Fei-Hsien Wang, a legal historian of modern China.  They describe their project as “a set of digital resources for legal historians, particularly those working on the non-Western world.”  They are creating an online directory of scholars, and their directory of digital resources already has two curated section.  One focuses on ways of reading primary legal sources; the other consists of conversations with legal historians whose books have recently been published: Rachel Sturman, Mitra Sharafi, and Issa Husin.
