Michael Douma from Georgetown University will give a talk on the topic “Creative Historical Thinking.” The talk will take place on April 10, 2019, from 4-5:30pm in Brush Mountain A (Squires Student Center). The talk is tailored to appeal to both students and faculty, with plenty of time for discussion and interaction with the guest speaker. You are cordially invited to attend.
The talk will be based on Professor Douma’s new book Creative Historical Thinking (Routledge, 2018). It will entail an interactive presentation about what it means for a historian to be creative and how to think about history in new ways and explore topics such as visualizations of time in spatial form, creative classroom diagrams, and the history of why men stopped wearing hats.
