The Long Shadow: American Puritanism, Then and Now, Part 2 of 2

Edmund Morgan and Timothy Breen address the historical and ideological influence of New England Puritans, which remains in the thinking of Americans. The conversation turns to the scholars’ focus on the historical enterprise in general, their attitudes toward the past, and how those attitudes relate to their ideas of contemporary society.

At the time of this interview, Breen, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1983-84, 1995-96), was professor of history at Northwestern University. Morgan was professor of history at Yale University.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
