Norman Hathaway: Dorothy and Otis

Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 10:30am

Otis Shepard and Dorothy Van Gorder were two gifted artists who married and teamed up to produce some of the most eye-catching and beautiful outdoors advertising in the middle decades of the 20th Century. Through their friendship with P.K. Wrigley of Wrigley’s gum, they also got to completely redesign Catalina Island and the Chicago Cubs. Their graphic art helped bring modernist design to America and helped to visually define an era. Tune in tonight when Inquiry talks with art director and design historian NORMAN HATHAWAY.

Malcom Gaskill: Between Two Worlds: How the English Became Americans

Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 9:30am

In the 17th Century, more than 350,000 English people crossed the Atlantic to become colonists in what would later be called America. They still considered themselves “English” and their relationship over the decades with what they considered their homeland was complex. Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with MALCOM GASKILL, Professor of Early Modern History at the University of East Anglia. His new book is titled BETWEEN TWO WORLDS: HOW THE ENGLISH BECAME AMERICANS.

Robert Beachy: Gay Berlin

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - 2:30pm

Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with ROBERT BEACHY, associate professor of history at the Underwood International College of Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. His new book is titled GAY BERLIN: BIRTHPLACE OF A MODERN IDENTITY. It is Beachy’s central argument that our modern understanding of homosexuality and gay culture started in the 19th Century city of Berlin. Berlin became a kind of laboratory of sexuality. This is a fascinating history complicated by the extreme politics of Germany in the first decades of the 20th Century.
