History@Work, ready to launch. Now that it's officially in operation, you'll be able to find new "Off the Wall" reviews there on a regular basis. The latest one is Zach McKiernan's first "Letter from Chile," a sobering account of how sites of memory are playing a role in resisting repressions that are all too reminiscent of the dictatorship of the 1970s.
The launch process for History@Work has been a rather "soft" one, and we'll be continuing to add new functionality and to tweak the design in the coming months. We hope you'll visit us there, subscribe to receive regular postings, and perhaps weigh in with comments (or even a proposal for a guest post). We're happy that "Off the Wall" has become a part of what we hope will be a vibrant mix of ideas and discussion about what's happening in the field and beyond!
