Historiansplaining: A historian tells you why everything you know is wrong

About This Show

Show Info:

History lectures by a historian (and antique dealer) with a relatively recent Phd in early American history; my dissertation was on Freemasonry in the 1700s. I have recently taught courses at Columbia U., Barnard College, and other institutions, and have had articles published in Early American Studies and the Journal of Caribbean History. The world today is nothing more than the product of everything that came before; hence, misunderstanding the past leads us to misjudge the present. I will focus on the historical myths and distortions that people use today in order to explain away the world in which we live; we will cut away the stilts supporting our illusions. Please see my Patreon page, https://www.patreon.com/user?u=5530632, if you want to keep the lectures coming, and to hear the patron-only materials.Read more »
