Workshop with Professor Bill Smaldone
On Wednesday, December, Willamette Academy students had the opportunity to participate in a workshop with Professor Bill Smaldone, a Professor of History and Chair of Latin American Studies at Willamette, who talked about his life as a professor.
Professor Smaldone has previously published two books in European history: Confronting Hitler: German Social Democrats in Defense of the Weimar Republic, (1929-1933) and Rudolf Hilferding: The Tragedy of a German Social Democrat. He has just published a third: European Socialism: A Concise History with Documents. He spent some time talking to the students both about his books and how he developed an interest in the topics they are based on.
