The Power of 1st Person Interpretation

Although not specifically about the Georgian Era, I would like to recommend an article posted on the “History Doctor” blog this week by Dr. Taylor Stoermer, a historian at Harvard University who used to be associated with William & Mary and Colonial Williamsburg.

1st person interpretation can often be horrid, particularly when performed by those who don’t understand the huge investment in scholarship, training and practice required to do it well.  But, when done properly, it can be transforming, as Dr. Stoermer points out in his article.

Please take a few minutes to read it at:

The History Doctor

Until next time.
