Welcome to Essentially a Nerd, so named because it’s what my friends call me. I have an undergrad background in art history and Spanish, a grad degree in Latin American lit and a grad degree in library and information science.

Found at link

I have a strong background in/fascination with Latin American history, music, history, and Chicago. Lots and lots of Chicago.

This is a domain of (usually) well-researched, well-documented nerdery in history, art history, literature, and architecture (and other stuff, including civil rights and unsolicited readers’ advisory).

Timelining Lives, the landing page for a number of different eras in the arts, is a springboard to pages such as Baroque and Impressionism, with links to interactive arts-based timelines.
