A New Adventure…

So I started a new project.  As a History PhD student, I’m always trying to think of ways to make people interested in the past.

I figured the easiest way to do this would be through social media.

So I made a twitter account.  Of me…talking about history…to my cats.

The videos are short (2 minutes or less is the goal) and hopefully focus on interesting historical events and people.  If you have twitter, I’d love for you to check it out!

We also have a YouTube Channel and a blog right here on WordPress for all of you non-Twitter users out there.  Here’s a sample video:

 

I know a lot of history, and I have a lot of cats.  (3 to be exact…and 1 dog who thinks he’s a cat).  So it seems like the perfect fit.

I hope you’ll follow along!

  1. I love this idea .. thinking it could be transferred to other contexts eg teacher suggests pupils explain a concept to their pet . Wouldn’t that be a fun, and useful, homework project?

      Yes that absolutely would be! I’d love to see it applied in classrooms!
