Week 12, Wednesday: April 28

Schedule for today

2-3 PM: Get Stuff Done Club: drop by with any questions you have, or just to say hi to me or other students in my courses. This is the equivalent of office hours/drop-in tutorials, your exclusive access to me. No appointment needed. Breakout rooms available, including quiet study space!

For HST271, our DLA Rachel will be available to help you with all your technical queries.

  • Catch up on the materials for tomorrow, then we can discuss anything you like in the zoom session, and you can write about what catches your attention most in your blog post. As always all the details are on the webpage for week 11.
  • Remember that you can ask questions in multiple locations: post on the TypePad, post in the Google chat room, or bring them to the Zoom on Thursday.
  • If you want quiet writing time and some company, I can meet you in the Zoom room 9.00am-11.00am. I will be sitting down with my project anyway. Save up questions and queries for the GSD Club in the afternoon, or on Thursday, or via email.


This is a recipe from last semester, but no need to wait until Thanksgiving to try these tasty potatoes. Which reminds me: I have some baby potatoes in the fridge! We may not think of potatoes as Chinese food, but like many other foods from the New World, they (mainly their cousin, the sweet potato, and corn) helped to feed the growing population of Late Imperial China. So check out these Chinese-inspired stir-fried potatoes. This totally fits with our courses this semester, because obviously potatoes and some of the spices would not have made their way to China until after the exploration of the Americas by Europeans. Or how East met West in China 😬
