Show Notes

History may be brimming with battlegrounds, but the discipline has long been one itself. Propagandists both of yesteryear and today have tried to subvert it for ideological reasons which is why today's guest, Robert Tombs, Emeritus Professor of French History, Cambridge, and a Fellow of St John’s College, helped found "History Reclaimed", an initiative dedicated to clawing back the pursuit from bad-faith actors. Robert Tombs is joined by leading New Zealand Historian Prof. Paul Moon and Dr. David Cumin to discuss "History Reclaimed" and the general state of academic freedoms in the West today. www.fsu/join
