The next meeting will be on Friday 23 November at 5pm in SSEES (14 Taviton Street) room 535. All welcome!
For the next session, we will read two short articles examining the nature of evidence, historical interpretation, and standards of proof. This will link with issues about the status of history raised in earlier sessions on Hayden White and Paul Ricoeur. The articles are:
and Carlo Ginzburg, “Just one Witness” in Saul Friedlander (ed.) Probing the Limits of Representation: Nazism and the ‘Final Solution’ (Harvard University Press, 1992) pp. 82-96.
Thanks to Clare for the suggestion.
