Wednesday’s Webisode: Biography and History

After a week off for Spring Break, Past & Presence returns today with an episode dedicated to biography:

The episode’s theme shows up in several different ways:

  • Prof. Chris Gehrz hosts the episode from his hometown of Stillwater, introducing viewers to some of the formative sites in his life
  • He and Prof. Amy Poppinga discuss their favorite biographies, how such sources show up in their teaching and research, and why historians are sometimes ambivalent about the genre
  • And our final faculty interview of this season finds Prof. AnneMarie Kooistra sharing some of her intellectual autobiography

All that plus ads for HIS/POS324G Human Rights in International History (being taught this fall by political science professor Andy Bramsen) and Bethel’s graduate program in teaching. (Here’s a From AC 2nd… interview with one of our alumni who earned her master’s through that program.)
