Know Monsters - History's Real Monsters
Real monsters and villains of history exposed.
Caligula. Vlad the Impaler. Benedict Arnold. Adolf Hitler. Osama bin Laden. When we think about "monsters" and history, pop culture often elevates certain historical actors into villainous characters without taking into account any of their context. In this program, COCC history professor Murray Godfrey will delve into the historical context of some of the most famous "monsters" of history, how they earned that characterization & why, and what their status as villains means for our current time.
Murray A. Godfrey is history professor and chair of the World Languages and Cultures department at Central Oregon Community College where he has worked since 2012. He received a Master of Arts degree in History from Texas State University specializing in the history of 17th and 18th century North America. Prior to coming to Central Oregon, Murray previously taught for Austin Community College in Austin, TX and Alamo Community College District in San Antonio, TX.
