WAMC in Albany will feature a reading by Maurice Isserman, James L. Ferguson Professor of History, on Thursday, Aug. 5, as part of the public radio station’s Academic Minute. The new program airs each weekday at 7:37 a.m. and 3:56 p.m at 90.3 FM in the Clinton area.

According to WAMC’s website, the Academic Minute program “features professors from top institutions around the country, delving into topics from the serious to the light-hearted, keeping listeners abreast of what’s new and exciting in the academy with topics ranging from updates on groundbreaking scientific research to an explanation of how the board game Monopoly can help explain the economic recession.”

Isserman’s topic focuses on Mount Washington in New Hampshire and those who have reached its summit. The recording will also be available at http://www.wamc.org/academic-minute.html following its airing. The next Hamilton professor to be heard on the program is Associate Professor of Economics Stephen Wu on Aug. 23.
