First Blog Post ever

This blog is a part of a class I am taking for my M.A. and so will feature my thoughts on some history topics and events primarily in public and digital history. The posts should be fairly brief but I may also have some longer ones devoted to the things I find super exciting that no one else I know does. I hope to continue using it after the semester ends to focus on my personal historical interests and not just class prompts.


An explanation of the title – a gam is a conversation, storytelling or visit generally between whalers at sea but can be used for onshore conversation as well.
