History and Memory
How does the public "remember" the past? How do such memories change over time? How does that memory compare with the actual sources? Historian Annette Laing introduces you to one of her beloved topics in academic history, and the work of scholars who write about it. Prepare to be surprised, even shocked!
Brit historian in the US Dr. Annette Laing is your witty and chatty guide through US and UK history, and how they connect.
“No one approaches history like Annette. Definitely not boring!”

“What's not to love about Non-Boring History? The name of Annette Laing's newsletter says it all. Lots of different ways to read about and explore US and UK history. So much fun!”

“With humor, insight, rigor, and a zest for narrative, Annette Laing explores the little—and big—tales of history. This self-described “renegade ex-professor of history (tenured, and quit, not fired, thank you),” delights with every post.”
