Writing about the past can be daunting. The path to a good work of history is full of dead ends, road bumps and blockades. Russell Cobb, recent author of The Great Oklahoma Swindle, will teach you how to navigate archives, distinguish fact from fiction and organize all your breadcrumbs into a cohesive story. A scholar, author and podcaster, Cobb will lead a discussion on researching, framing and narrating history for the general public. He’ll survey the field of history podcasts and talk about print and online outlets looking for history stories. Whether you want to start a new podcast, write a documentary treatment or simply pen a family history, this class will get you on your way to creating your own history project.
