Join historian Dan Bouk to think about census records in a new way. In this talk, Bouk reads 1940 census sheets alongside archival collections to tell the story of the census itself, a vast, awe-inspiring operation, and of the nation that it described.

Dan Bouk teaches history at Colgate University in upstate New York. He is the author of Democracy's Data, one of the New York Times's 100 notable books for 2022.
