As mentioned last week in What We’re Reading, C-SPAN traveled to Boston earlier this month to film a number of sessions and events at the 125th Annual Meeting. This past weekend they made available online video coverage of the plenary session, “History and the Public: A Session in Honor of Arnita Jones’ Commitment to the Public Work of Historians,” at the Opening of the 125th Annual Meeting. At this session a panel of historians spoke on the public work of historians and celebrated Arnita Jones’ career in the history profession.
