Matthew Battles: Palimpsest: A History of the Written Word

Thursday, July 30, 2015 - 10:30am

Reading existed long before the written word. Writing is a craft, a learned skill. From the ancient cuneiform of Mesopotamia through the alphabets of Ancient Greece and beyond the invention of the printing press, the written word has continuously changed those that write it and read it. Tonight on Inquiry we speak with MATTHEW BATTLES, writer and program fellow at the Berkman Center of Harvard University about his amazing new history: PALIMPSET: A HISTORY OF THE WRITTEN WORD.  

Sean Condon: Shay's Rebellion

Thursday, July 30, 2015 - 9:30am

Just a few years after the end of our conflict with Britain, the newly formed country of America was in poor financial condition. The country owed lots of money and the only way to get the needed funds was to raise taxes on farmers and landowners. Many of those farmers were deep in debt and in danger of losing their farms, lands and possessions. Finally enough was enough and organized bands of “Regulators” blocked courts and some resorted to violent insurrection in Massachusetts.
