In this episode Grant teaches us about the Benin Bronzes, thousands of exquisite pieces of art that are not made of bronze, and not in Benin. And to talk about this specific crime of colonialism, we have to talk about the empire it came from, and the shifting dynamic between Europe and the world as capitalism and white supremacy developed side-by-side.

We have returned! After a brief hiatus, History Honeys is back. This week, Alaina is teaching us about the history of deaf education, and the development of contemporary sign languages.

As we look back on the year that passed, Grant is reminded of an even more explosive one: 1848. The great powers of Europe had made themselves the center of the world, and then those powers collapsed as a broad coalition of citizens rose up in the name of freedom. But whose freedom counts most? Is this a story of nations or of classes? Why are revolutions graded pass/fail?

Two Playwrights

Grant wants us to get some culture, so he shines a light on the roots of theater in the West. Hrotsvitha was inspired to use the language of a playwright who lived a millennium before her to impart moral lessons to those who followed her. Hildegard of Bingen steered liturgical drama toward a form much more recognizable as theater, and invented a genre that would become dominant hundreds of years later.
