HISTORY BITES: Making the Past Present with Tracey O’Shaughnessy

May 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Navigation

Journalism has been called “the first draft of history.” But it also reflects on the past, publishing stories about art, culture or corners of history that still merit attention. Whether that means an art exhibit about Giotto or revisiting the Flood of ’55, journalism can make the past present. Tracey O’Shaughnessy, a senior editor at the Republican-american, will discuss how that is done and why she believes that newspapers may be the first chance to bring history to contemporary readers.

Free and open to the public.

With generous funding from the Connecticut Community Foundation, this years’s series will be hosted on Thursdays between April and June at noon. Find a full list of venues here and here
