Always follow the sources and never invent ‘information’. That’s what we, historians, are taught during our education. But recently my students and I have been making up stories. We have been ‘interviewing’ people from Utrecht who have been dead for quite a few years. By Geertje Dekkers
In this Hoe geschiedenis jij? Professor Pim Huijnen introduces the concept of historical podcast series. This format offers historians a way to show the everyday process behind their work. It triggers them to also think about storytelling, tension build-ups and activating their listeners. If they manage to do so, a lot of opportunities arise, building on the endless amount of historical stories, cold cases and information. Huijnen therefore calls on students and historians to go and explore the format of historical podcast series.
