Yesterday I browsed through 1806 search results because I couldn't decide which terms to use to narrow it. I wrote down some interesting things. Today I visited in person indexes to a journal that didn't help me, and found an article that did help by accident, paginated directly before one required for another class. Proper research areas are appearing like constellations in the night sky, but with less charm.

search results from 1806...?

a happy accident.. & research areas like constellations.

sounds more romantic that it probably is in reality...

The earliest ones look like the most fun. The scholars were held rapt in the romance of the frontier. Now scholars just like to call out past racism, beyond what I can usefully engage with at present.
