A classroom lecture on colonial American history will get a much broader audience when it is broadcast by C-SPAN. A crew from the public affairs network’s Lectures in History series visited the IC campus last month to tape a presentation by professor of history Michael Trotti.
The lecture will air on C-SPAN2’s American History TV on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time. In addition to the live broadcasts, the lecture will be available to view online at the C-SPAN website.
“The series lets people go back to school for one class, to be a fly on the wall so viewers can get that classroom experience for one day,” said American History TV Coordinating Producer John McArdle. He notes that there is no dearth of college professors in the Washington, D.C. area—where C-SPAN is based—who they can feature.
