The Ranums' Panat Times
Unpublished articles by Orest Ranum, and some syllabi as well
At one of our meetings of the Old Regime Group here in the Baltimore-Washington area (a terrific paper by Barbara Diefendorf), I mentioned something about what I had taught in my French cultural history course. My interlocutor said: "Why don't you put your syllabus on the net?" In the interest of all who are struggling to mark exams and turn in grades and at the same time turn in book-order lists, I humbly suggest what follows -- pieces of which may be helpful.
Orest has also been publishing papers that he presented at conferences.
