A class taught by Monmouth College history professor Stacy Cordery will be featured on C-SPAN 3’s American History TV on July 19.
American History TV features a weekly series called “Lectures in History,” in which a video crew visits colleges across the country to tape a class session in its entirety for playback at a later date. The series features a range of classroom settings, from straight lectures presented to 250 students to seminars heavy on discussion with as few as six students.
At Monmouth, a visiting crew taped a session from Cordery’s seven-week freshman course about the 1960s.
“The particular class that was taped (on April 11) focused on the Women’s Liberation Movement,” said Cordery. “We discussed the ideals and goals that drove feminists and the movement, and we examined several essays published by feminist writers of the time.”
Cordery, who began teaching at Monmouth in 1994, is the author of highly-acclaimed biographies of Alice Roosevelt Longworth and Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low.
“Lectures in History” airs on C-SPAN 3 at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. Central time each Saturday night, and at 12 noon Central time each Sunday. A preview of Cordery’s class session is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJNh1KNxbA8&feature=youtu.be
