“As an advocate and educator of history, context is so important to my own learning. I want to know: How has this topic been studied or considered in the past? Why are we thinking about it differently now? Whether it’s through published research, a podcast, or a really robust Twitter thread, I recognize that learning happens in many ways and is often just a jumping off point to what to learn next.”
