What We Learn When We Learn About History

Henry Ford famously said, "History is more or less bunk!" Author, historian and Professor Woden Teachout will discuss in this special lecture why history does matter.

Filene Auditorium, Moore Building
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars
Fee required.

Woden Teachout is a professor in the Master’s program at Union Institute & University in Brattleboro. She is the author of Capture the Flag: A Political History of American Patriotism and a Vermont Humanities Council lecturer.  Her work centers around the intersection of history, politics and patriotism while her experiences teaching nontraditional students in a progressive education setting have made her particularly interested in issues of historical pedagogy. A Hanover high graduate, she holds a Ph.D in the history of American civilization from Harvard and is a member of the New England Historical Association. Her most recent book, with Susan Clark, is Slow Democracy: Bringing Decision Making Back Home.
