jasonRecently we met with San Francisco-based cultural historian Jason Lahman, to kick off our podcast series about storytelling.   In a lively conversation that ranged from Madame Curie to the Greek Myths, Jason gave us his insights about storytelling as it relates to his own historical study and teaching.  Thank you Jason for a delightful interview and can’t wait to talk again!

 

Jason Lahman is a historian, essayist and poet.  His historical work focuses mainly on early modern (late Renaissance and Enlightenment) philosophy and science and the cultural history of 19th century Britain and France.  He is currently teaching a course entitled “Paris: Biography of a City” at San Francisco State University.
