The History Lecture Thread


Recommended Posts

This thread is for posting videos of history lectures.  This thread is not for documentaries.  Any lecture topic is ok, just as long as it's historical and the video is of decent quality.  

 

I'll start with some video series from Yale University.  They have been recording and posting on youtube entire courses.  Watching these is like going to college but without having to write papers or do the readings.  

 

Yale Professor Paul Freedman on the Early Middle Ages

I hope that this is for others adding in with some of our own? I had posted this but then my normal tendency to second guess myself came into effect and I was giving myself thoughts about it being primarily for you to post seminars that you have collected. 

 

MIT has its own recorded courses ( http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/audio-video-courses/#history ), but there are only 2 in the history section, and they are significantly shorter than their Open Yale Courses equivalent, and they weren't even playing for me earlier… which is admittedly probably more due to me not upgrading relevant software than the actual course. Asia in the Modern World looks quite interesting; I haven't looked at the others in the same detail but they are available on

.

 

I also really recommend the already-mentioned Open Yale Courses' Global problems of population growth, which while not in the history department was a majority or at least a plurality devoted to historical matters, and which was my favorite course that I had watched there. And there was even one about France, so high praise from me!
