What is it about?
This essay provides a reflection on public history and its relationship with the early modern period inspired by the book, What is Early Modern history? by Merry E. Wiesner-Hanks. This essay explores three ideas: Who identifies as a scholar of the early modern period, the roles museums and historic sites play in creating broad public awareness about early modern history, and why podcasts provide historians with a great tool to create better understandings and connections with the early modern period.
