Blog CLXXXII (182): "I Want My History TV!"

There is a new trend in the history business.  A number of history departments are creating promotional videos for their programs.  The purposes of these videos seem to vary a bit.  I suspect most of them are used at things like freshmen orientation sessions or college nights at high schools where universities recruit students.  Some do seem to be trying to attract undergraduates, but others seem to be selling their graduate programs.  There are 60 departments represented below from universities in Canada, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka, the United Kingdom, and the United States.  Some of these videos are hanging on departmental websites, but most are embedded on Youtube.com or vimeo.com.

Regardless of their location, what they tell us is the public perception that the department would like to project to the outside world.

(Technical note: All of the embedded videos allow the viewer to expand to full screen.  The ones from USC and Princeton are hanging off the server for Blogger and the viewer is limited to a small version.  "In the Service of Clio" has added direct links to the websites where the original versions of these videos can be found and if the viewer wants to, they can expand to full screen.)
