The Junto is happy to present the second episode of “The JuntoCast,” our new monthly podcast featuring Juntoists discussing issues related to early American history, academia, pedagogy, and public history.
In our second episode, Kenneth Owen, Michael D. Hattem, Roy Rogers, and Eric Herschthal use the recent MCEAS conference, “The American Revolution Reborn,” as a springboard to launch into a discussion on questions of periodization, Atlantic and global contexts, the limits of “republicanism,” and the value of recovering “lived experience.”
Note: Please bear with us. The first few episodes will be experimental as we try to find the best method for recording a podcast with 3 or 4 participants, all in different locations. The podcast will appear at least once per calendar month and the length of the podcast will likely vary anywhere from fifteen to forty-five minutes. In addition, we will be introducing “Meet The Juntoists,” a series of much briefer podcasts in which a Juntoist talks about his or herself and their past and current work. These will appear in-between regular podcast episodes. As always, any feedback will be greatly appreciated, including suggesting future topics to be covered.
