Thinking about History

Wednesday, August 26, 2020
2:50 pm
virtual, via Zoom

A conversation with Dr. Sarah Maza, Jane Long Professor in the Arts and Sciences and Professor of History at Northwestern University, author of Thinking about History (University of Chicago Press, 2017).


Using Maza's book as an inspiration, we'll tackle some of the questions she poses in it:

What distinguishes history as a discipline?  Whose history do we write, and how does that affect what stories get told (and how)? What is the relation between popular, academic, and public history, and how should we evaluate sources?
