Professor Penney Clark and Professor Alan Sears, 13th June, 2023, 4.30-6.00pm, British Summer Time (CET+1) Hayden White made the point that “both science [empirically-based history] and art have transcended the older, stable conceptions of the world which required that they render a literal copy of a presumably static reality. And both have discovered the essentially provisional character of the metaphorical constructions which they use to comprehend a dynamic universe” (1). White’s position was initially enormously controversial. However, we agree with historian Peter Novick, who said, with ..read more

7th March 2022, 6-7.30pm GMT, via Zoom Professor Ethan Kleinbern, Wesleyan University This talk, is meant to challenge some assumptions about the ways we think about the past and “do” history. In particular, I challenge the idea of a stable past or meaning that can be called back or retrieved. What I call “ontological realism.” The past by definition is gone and thus has no definite properties or perhaps we can say that it has latent properties that are activated when we do history. But this activation of the past is always partial leaving remains that are hidden or dormant. This is a past tha ..read more
