Sixteenth-century verse, eh? I'm curious as to what kind of history you practice (being that I'll probably be a practicing historian myself one of these days).
Hey, diamondrock. In my case, I'm hoping that practice does makes one (more) perfect.

I work on European-indigenous interactions in the Americas between the years 1500-1750. I study and teach about how indigenous peoples and Africans were incorporated into the complex colonial societies forged by the Spanish and English.

I've got a general interest in the art and culture of the time period, (hence the 16C English verse).

Good to hear that you're planning to join the ranks. What are your interests?
