How We Know What We Know: Exploring The Last Archive

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic How do we know what we know? This question is the central theme of Jill Lepore’s podcast The Last Archive (www.thelastarchive.com). Lepore, a professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer for The New Yorker, will help us assess an array of historical events, sifting through the evidence to find the frequently elusive truth. Topics such as an early twentieth century murder mystery, the polio crusade of the 1950s, the Apollo moon landing, and social media have been targets of Lepore’s penetrating analysis. Podcasts run from 35 to 45 minutes. Members will listen to one or two assigned podcasts before each study group session. Discussion is guided by questions found on The Last Archive website. Discussions will be organized and led by study group volunteers.
