Zoom Program: City BBQ Food for Thought Series – A History of Our Time: Recording History While We Live It

Tuesday, May 18, 2021
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The City Barbeque Food for Thought Series is returning for the eighth year, bringing great informative and fantastic talks to our Cold Spring Branch via Zoom.  Those that attend will have a chance at winning a City Barbeque Gift Card.

A History of Our Time: Recording History While We Live It with Dr. Rebecca Bailey

Dr. Rebecca Bailey will guide us through a brief exploration of what we know and how, about the everyday people who lived through the 1918 Influenza Epidemic. And then she will turn to the ways that we can record for future generations our responses to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Bailey studied public history and Appalachian history for her masters and doctoral degrees, which she earned at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. Her dissertation examined the local context of the Matewan Massacre, an episode in the West Virginia mine wars of the early 20th century. Her dissertation was published by West Virginia University Press as Matewan Before the Massacre. As an expert on the subject she was selected to be a contributing and featured scholar for the PBS “American Experience” episode, The Mine Wars. Her current research focuses on the life and work of one of the journalists who covered the mine wars. After coming to NKU in 2006 to start the public history program, Dr. Bailey now teaches exclusively online. Her courses cover the range of American history survey, American industrial history, American immigration history, the history of American popular culture, and periods in 20th century American history.

This is a live program that will be conducted via Zoom, a free online video conferencing platform. Registration is required. On the day of the program, we will email you with the link to join the live program. You are not required to have a Zoom account . If you would like to create a free account though, you may do so at https://zoom.us/signup.
