Well, we’re wrapping up “United by Water” this afternoon. It has been a fantastic week (two weeks actually)! So I have to stay close to home for this week’s “source of the week” post. This is a Wordle of the talk I gave this morning: “After the Wreck: Wreckers, Wrecking, and the Shipwreck Landscape.” The talk traced what happened to shipwrecks after they wrecked during the late nineteenth-century and what they can tell us about American culture, industrialization, and the Great Lakes maritime cultural landscape. I hope to get around to turning these notes into prose one day. But until then, this is all I have time to “publish.” More to come in the weeks ahead about Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and “United By Water: Exploring American History through the Shipwrecks and Maritime Landscapes of the Great Lakes.” Spoiler alert: they rocked!
