Happy Fourth of July and Mea Culpa

The aim of Campaign Context is to feature academic discussions on issues relating to the elections, on a monthly basis. In June, due to scheduling conflicts and technical glitches, we unfortunately were unable to do this. We expect to be back with a new episode later in July instead. In the meantime, please take a listen to some of our favorite academic podcasts.

Past Present features historians Nicole Hemmer, Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, and Neil Young discussing politics and culture on a weekly basis. Recent topics discussed include Trump’s faltering campaign, the Orlando tragedy, and Hillary Clinton as the first female presumptive nominee for president.

Politics & Polls is a new podcast hosted by historian Julian Zelizer and  Sam Wang, professor of neuroscience and molecular biology. The first episode deals with the Trump-Goldwater comparison, Brexit, and The Party Decides.

Who Makes Cents is hosted by Betsy Beasley and David Stein, and features a wide array of historians talking about their work.
