About the author (2012)

Mark C. Carnes, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of History at Barnard College, has explored the ways in which history is imagined. In Past Imperfect: History According to the Movies and Novel History: Historians and Novelists Confront America's Past, he has examined two varieties of the historical imagination. He has pioneered "Reacting to the Past," in which college students play elaborate games, their roles informed by classic texts. He is also general editor of the American National Biography.
