Practicing History Podcast Episode 1: What is History?
Practicing History is a podcast devoted to a broad approach to studying history — from research to teaching to methodology to theory. Practicing History is particularly interested in the manifold ways that humans make their history. As such, it is concerned not only with how professionals construct histories but how we all make history anew every day – through retelling and reimagining it and by the very fact that we are ourselves historical actors.
