In the face of the global crises of climate change and permanent pandemic the human community needs now to forge new narratives of World History.

“We had fed the heart on fantasies;
The heart’s grown brutal from the fare.”

W. B. Yeats, Meditations in Time of Civil War

A pioneering scholar, admired professor and global educator who led the way in these efforts recently died.  It is appropriate to reflect on his enduring legacy.  This brief presentation is a compilation of thoughts and previous programs on aspects of World History that deserve attention — ever more poignantly as the entire human community now faces a “shelter-in-place” imperative imposed by a virus one billionth the size of an individual human being.   Never has the world community been in greater need of a new understanding of World History — a vision of which was championed with great kindness and generosity of heart by Prosser Gifford.
