Title: The Environment and the Historian
Description: Lecture given by Dr. Woodward for the "American Civilization By Its Interpreters" video series. Woodward gives a personal account of his beginnings in provincial Arkansas and early hesitance to focus his work on Southern history, critiquing historical relativism along the way. He cites three inspirations for becoming a Southern historian: William Faulkner and creative writers of the 1930s Southern Renaissance, Walter Prescott Webb, and ignorance about the South that he encountered in his travels.
