As a follow-up to the AskHistorians podcast episode the other day, Brian and I also had a discussion about postmodernism. Although I share some of his concerns, I wanted to take the opportunity to articulate a version of postmodernism that I think makes the most sense from a historical standpoint and defend that. We had the discussion immediately following our recording, so you’ll find I reference the podcast episode a few times. It’s (mostly) unedited, so there’s a few ums and pauses in there. Anyway, an interesting discussion.
Monday Methods: A special episode of our podcast and a discussion post regarding: Post-modernism and history. How do we engage with it? Where do we go from here? What is the history of the future? from AskHistorians
