Course Title: The Challenge of History: How Historians Challenge the Misuse of the Past
Course Instructor: Jason Ridler, PhD
Brought to you by Odyssey
June 21, 2023 - July 26, 2023 (6 sessions)
Thursday, 1 PM ET
Virtual via Zoom
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Historians must always be ready to challenge those who misuse the past, no matter who the adversary. Because history is not boring. History is power- and that is why bad actors want it to legitimize everything from self-help products to ideologies. In The Challenge of History, students will learn the techniques historians use to ferret out and challenge the misuse of history- ranging from conspiracy theories and academic crimes to darker adversaries like Holocaust Deniers.
