by Injee Hong It's hard to believe that I’m saying this, but we are already at the end of our fall semester here at Centre College. To say that Block 2 flew by would be a major understatement. The opportunity to have an entire six-week block dedicated solely to my history major definitely contributed… Continue reading Goodbye Fall 2020 & Reflecting on my History Major
by Injee Hong World War II is a topic that I have had quite a lot of contact with over the course of my history career, whether it was through U.S., European, or world history courses.

The dense academic writing often featured in conventional histories has its place among scholars, but new ways of bringing history into your living room, dorm, or… Continue reading From Archive to Podcast: the William Goebel Assassination
We hope everyone is staying safe! And staying safe right now means a lot of time indoors. A friend of mine at Whitworth University shared a list of songs she had put together on Spotify – a “playlist” if you will – and I thought this was such a great idea! I used to love… Continue reading Pandemic Playlists from the History Program!
We are back! This is our first post of 2020. As you may or may not know, we have an intensive CentreTerm here at Centre College every January, and as both Tara and I taught classes during this term, I am afraid that the website got an extra few weeks tacked on to its winter… Continue reading Hello Spring 2020!
Well folks, that's it for me! 'Tis the end of the semester, so I will be signing off (for now). Hopefully I'll be back in the spring with a podcast or two!
