Housekeeping: Removing “Historians of Early Modern Spain”

So it’s been almost ten years since I’ve started this blog, and I’m about to make a change: removing the page for “Historians of Early Modern Spain.” It’s outlived its usefulness, since anyone can be easily googled these days, even our colleagues overseas, and it’s the most time-consuming part of maintaining this site (indeed I’ve not kept it up to date for some time). I will still provide links to the authors of books/articles/etc that I post about, but no longer attempt to maintain an exhaustive list.
