IPUP Media Speaker Series: Dan Snow at IPUP
11th May 2010
In a talk entitled “Can Television and the Internet Make a Valid Contribution to Historical Discourse?”, Dan Snow discussed his experience translating history degree skills to production and presenter roles for television. The lecture, organised by IPUP, was held in the Bowland Auditorium in the Berrick Saul Building, and was sponsored by Continuum.
As a programme-maker and someone who is passionate about history I believe television is a vital tool in getting people interested.
IPUP has produced a variety of resources on Dan’s visit, including this video. Also available is a transcript of Dan’s talk edited extracts from an in-depth interview with Dan conducted by IPUP Director Helen Weinstein.
I’m extremely excited about the future of history, and I think the internet and television have got a fantastically important part to play
