Clio, the Greek muse of history, with scrolls. The name khronikos derives from the Greek word for time.

Welcome to the Khronikos blog! This blog is dedicated to showcasing the work of University of Maine graduate history students. Here you’ll find original research posts, book reviews, from the archives, and other history-related discussions.

We’re on Summer Break:

Our bloggers and editor are enjoying a well-earned summer break. We’ll be spending some of our vacation in the archives, library, and on our laptops working on new posts, but in the meantime please explore our archives. Past posts are organized by topic (labeled Index) and chronologically (labeled Archives) in the menus on the right hand side of the home page. We plan to check in a few times over the next few months with special posts, but regular blogging will resume September 3rd. Thanks for visiting!
