Next Episode (DWH 3.7) - Reddit's r/AskHistorians
Join us Friday May 12 at 7pm (ET) to talk about doing good history on the internet and public outreach to 1.8 MILLION readers
Drinking with Historians concludes! 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 some of the moderators from Reddit’s r/AskHistorians. This huge community of curious readers and posters is one of the most amazing venues for public history around. We’ll talk with them about how they do it, why they do it, and what was the worst thing ever put on the internet (probably).
Our guests will be:
PH Jones is an independent scholar whose research focuses on dueling and honor culture in an Euro-American context. He has been moderating AskHistorians for nine years.
Roel Konijneddijk is Darby Fellow in Ancient History at Lincoln College, University of Oxford. He studies Classical Greek and Persian warfare and their treatment in modern scholarship. He’s written Classical Greek Tactics: A Cultural History (2018) and Between Miltiades and Moltke: Early German Studies in Greek Military History (2023).
Jeremy Salkeld is a postgraduate student at Mansfield College, University of Oxford, studying religion and ethnic identity in mid-nineteenth century China. He has moderated AskHistorians since 2019.
