History and Memory from 1968

FRI, NOV 2, 2018 (19:57)

Heat and Light is a sound rich intersection of history and memory focused on lesser known watershed events of 1968; history as told by academics in conversation with host Phillip Martin, a national award-winning senior investigative reporter with WGBH public radio. Heat and Light is produced by The Conversation US, which arose out of deep-seated concerns for the fading quality of our public discourse – and recognition of the vital role that academic experts can play in the public arena. Independent and not-for-profit, it is part of a global network of newsrooms first launched in Australia in 2011. The Conversation began its US operations in 2014, and now also publishes in Canada, the UK, France, Indonesia, Africa, Spain as well as Australia.
