Discover more from Drinking with Historians
Next Episode (DWH 3.6) - Jamelle Bouie
Join us Friday April 28 at 7pm (ET) to talk about how history informs journalism, and why the past maybe matters now more than ever
Drinking with Historians returns! Join your hosts Matt Gabriele (Virginia Tech) and Varsha Venkatsubramanian (UC-Berkeley) as they chat over drinks with historians about movies, music, and maybe even some history. Like Drunk History but with historians and (perhaps) a bit less drunk and a bit more history.
This upcoming episode, we’ll be talking with Jamelle Bouie (columnist, The New York Times) about how history informs his own writing, how historians can learn from journalists (and vice-versa), and maybe some 80s movies and breakfast cereals.
Jamelle Bouie is a columnist for the New York Times and political analyst for CBS News. He covers history and politics. Prior to the Times, Jamelle was chief political correspondent for Slate magazine. And before that, he was a staff writer at The Daily Beast and held fellowships at The American Prospect and The Nation magazine. He attended the University of Virginia, where he graduated with a degree in political and social thought, and government.
