For those of you unaware, S-USIH’s assistant book review editor Lilian Calles Barger has conducted an interview with Tim Lacy. The interview, posted at New Books in American Studies, concerns Lacy’s latest book, Dreams of a Democratic Culture: Mortimer J. Adler and the Great Books Idea. In addition, I’d like to also remind everyone of the roundtable we did last year concerning Lacy’s book. In short, it’s as good a time as any to read Dreams of a Democratic Culture, especially with recent debates about how the public perceives the historical profession and what makes up the “public.” Good job Lilian and Tim!
Also, I’d like to also remind everyone about Lilian’s interview with Lisa Tetrault, the author of The Myth of Seneca Falls: Memory and the Women’s Suffrage Movement, 1848-1898. Lilian’s review of that book is here.
