Fri, May 2, 2014

CREEES affiliate and Department of American Studies Professor Julia Mickenberg was featured on a panel discussion called, "Stars & Tsars: A History of US/Russia Relations," which aired April 30 on BackStory - a public radio program & podcast that brings historical perspective to the events happening around us today. 

On each show, renowned U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh tear a topic from the headlines and plumb its historical depths. Over the course of the hour, they are joined by fellow historians, people in the news, and callers interested in exploring the roots of what’s going on today. Together, they drill down to colonial times and earlier, revealing the connections (and disconnections) between past and present. The weekly show is currently broadcast by 36 primary public radio stations, serving 72 communities in 20 states and Washington, D.C.—and more than 40 other public stations regularly air BackStory episodes as specials.
