Then and Now: Global History and Culture

Welcome to our podcast. Current episodes feature lectures from my global culture and history course at the University of Minnesota. The podcast title (Then and Now)  reflects the relationship between today's events with the history forces from the past.

When the podcast began in 2006, it was a project with students in my global history course. We worked together to: (a) review of history topics in the course' (b) special music episodes connecting a country's culture with its artistic production through music; (c) special interview episodes with voices of students and community members as they were part of historical events; (d) 'podcast rebroadcasts' that other history podcasters gave permission to rebroadcast one of their episodes; and (e) music videos that featured important slides from the unit PP presentation. Every episode featureded some of the best independent music artists from a website that makes available podcast-approved songs. Share comments about the podcast with the course instructor, David Arendale, arendale@umn.edu  I am an associate professor  at UMN.  Visit my personal website for other history-related content and other information, http://arendale.org
