Christian Historians and Social Media: Part Five

Over at Religion in American History, Jonathan Den Hartog wraps up a week's work of coverage of the Christian Historians and Social Media panel at the biennial meeting of the Conference on Faith and History

For an introduction to the session and the series of posts that have appeared this week, see Jonathan Den Hartog's post at Historical Conversations.  I also live-tweeted the session from the platform. You can read those tweets @johnfea1 or #cfh2014.  You can also read my contribution to the roundtable here.  Chris Gehrz's contribution to the roundtable can be found at his blog, The Pietist Schoolman.  And Paul Putz weight in here.

Here is a taste of Jonathan's wrap-up:

In the session, we were fortunate to have some live-tweeting going on. Some of it even came from our panelists! Chris Gehrz collected the relevant tweets here. For even more, you can follow the twitter hashtag #CFH2014. (This may generate some reflection on how a live-tweeted session may be communicated differently to the twitterverse than as experienced by participants.)

We have also had some web feed-back, with reflections from Warren Throckmortonand John Wilsey.

We wanted to use the Comments section of this post as a final place for interaction. If this conversation is of interest anywhere, it should be to the readers of and contributors to this blog.

So, with all of that background material, the digital floor is now open for comments and questions.
