What does the Pundit do?

The Good Assyrian:
I think that there may be the makings of a historians' cabal here...

I have a MA in History and teach at a local university.  My specialty in grad school was Soviet mass culture in the 1920s and early 30s.

Since most of you guys have chosen to be more detailed then I was, I'll mention for those of you who might have been curious that my undergraduate (honours) thesis was related to early modern European occultists (specifically John Dee); and for my post-graduate thesis I took a U-turn and ended up studying the origins of Christianity (in part because I had the opportunity to get a fellow of the Jesus Seminar as my advisor).

Neat!  I have read quite a bit about John Dee and I am currently studying Koine Greek.  My study partner is planning to go to Seminary and needs to read the New Testament in the original Greek, but I am along for the post-Classical pagan philosophers like Marcus Aurelius.

Lots of historians around here...cool.

I'll be a tad more detailed.  I'm currently concentrating (for my MA) in Latin American and Modern United States history...although I'm only in the latter because my university kind of sucks and doesn't have a 19th century concentration.

In the modern US concentration, I specialize in 1880-1939, and in my Latin America concentration I study the Spanish conquest of Mexico (until about 20 years after Cortez "conquered" the Aztecs), and Mexico in general.

Switch over to South American history, so that you'll have an excuse to come visit Uruguay!
