Stamps may seem like innocuous pieces of paper with glue on the back but stamps also tell the history of American experience. On this episode of Inquiry, we talk with LAURA GOLDBLATT, assistant professor of English at the University of Virginia and RICHARD HANDLER, professor of anthropology and global studies at the University of Virginia. Their new book is THE AMERICAN STAMP: POSTAL ICONOGRAPHY, DEMOCRATIC CITIZENSHIP, AND CONSUMERISM IN THE UNITED STATES.
