The IUP History Department has undertaken a new project….well, more of an experiment. One of our emeritus faculty, Dr. Irwin Marcus, has agreed to let us record a series of his lectures for delivery via the web. I am very excited about the project for several reasons. First, Dr. Marcus is an amazing individual. He is well-read on a far-reaching range of subjects. I have listened to many of his talks and am always blown away by how interesting his talks are….and a bit envious of his abilities. Second, Dr. Marcus has never made use of any computer technology, so it is very ironic that we are going to deliver his lectures online. I am in the process of developing a WordPress site for the project, code named “The Irwin Marcus Project” and am trying to learn about audio files – I still have a lot to learn.
