Home / General / Welcome!




I am happy to announce that we have a new writer with the keys to the LGM kingdom. Melissa Byrnes is an associate professor of history at Southwestern University who specializes in Islam, human rights, and migration from north Africa to Europe. She is finishing a book on post-1945 community activism for North African rights and welfare in the suburbs of Paris and Lyon.

You may remember her from her two guestposts after the Paris terrorist attacks of 2015. Here is the first and here is the second. For now, until you all wow her with your amazing commentary or whatever, she plans on being an occasional poster, but you never know when someone will find an opportunity to have an audience for dead horses or American graves or condiment authoritarianism. Her first post will be this evening or tomorrow, so please welcome our new writer!
