The American Founders and Their World

You can listen in as distinguished historians talk about their research and their craft in a new Stanford series, The American Founders and Their World (iTunes).

Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Jack Rakove is the moderator in most of the discussions, which focus on the practice of history as it relates to the events and personalities involved in the founding of the United States.

Stanford has posted two of the sessions, with two more to come. In the first discussion, Rakove talks with Annette Gordon-Reed, author The Hemingses of Monticello, about the complicated legacy of slavery.

In the second section Rakove talks with Gordon Wood of Brown University and Pauline Maier of MIT about the radicalism of the American Revolution.
