Yes, it really has been a whole year since the School of American Studies at the University of East Anglia inaugurated this blog. In that time, Containing Multitudes has fulfilled (and extended) its brief to serve as an informal record of life in the school, and a guide to issues of interest in our discipline.
We've covered a plethora of news stories, and paid particular attention to the ongoing election drama (more of which to come); we've heard from AMS students in far flung fields, made some new international friends, and warranted some interesting mentions; we've profiled research tools, original readings, original writing, and kept a record of a great year of research seminars.
Since it's been a while, it's worth reminding everyone that you can keep up to date with Containing Multitudes through a variety of channels. You can receive updates via the Portal, get e-mails (see the sidebar), subscribe to the feed through the reader of your choice, and/or become a fan of AMS on our Facebook page.
Whilst the rate of posts may slow over the summer, fear not: Containing Multitudes will be back in full effect at the beginning of the new academic year. In fact, we'll be better than ever. Big new developments are on the way, so stay tuned.
