Henry Ford famously said, "History is more or less bunk!" Author, historian and Professor Woden Teachout will discuss in this special lecture why history does matter.
Woden Teachout is a professor in the Master’s program at Union Institute & University in Brattleboro. She is the author of Capture the Flag: A Political History of American Patriotism and a Vermont Humanities Council lecturer. Her work centers around the intersection of history, politics and patriotism while her experiences teaching nontraditional students in a progressive education setting have made her particularly interested in issues of historical pedagogy. A Hanover high graduate, she holds a Ph.D in the history of American civilization from Harvard and is a member of the New England Historical Association. Her most recent book, with Susan Clark, is Slow Democracy: Bringing Decision Making Back Home.
