Is Past Prologue?

In separate interviews, Timothy Breen and, at [14:00], Franklin Ford consider the study of history. Is the past prologue? Do historians agree that the past is in fact recognizable? How does history’s changing landscape affect historians’ views of the future?

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

Ford, also a Fellow at the Center (1983-84), was professor of history at Harvard University.

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