This week we begin a new series of podcasts, which we are calling Making History.
Making History is a series of interviews with our graduate students about their work lives. Professional historians, like history books, do not spring fully-formed from library
carrels or shelves of archival boxes. They are “made,” in processes both painful and illuminating, and sometimes funny. In this series, NEP sits down with our outstanding young scholars to hear their stories about discovering their historical voices. By exploring their diverse backgrounds, their approaches to studying the past, and their adventures carrying out their dissertation research, we offer a “behind the books” view of the making of history and historians.
Look for new podcasts each Tuesday this month.
To kick off the series, our blogger Rachel Herrmann (who took off to do research this year before we could get her in the recording studio!), contributes the story of her experience with “Comps” here.
