Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies pres.

EIHS Symposium: Rethinking Time, Thinking Multitemporally

Time, the messy stuff of which history is made, constitutes a rich nexus of possibilities. Yes, it moves steadily forward. Still, there were and are many times: Measured times, imagined times, lived times, narrated times, subaltern times, and other times await those who tend to temporal rhythms analytically, in the past as well as in the present. Recognizing the plural within the temporal is nothing new, however. Thinking time on multiple planes has a venerable intellectual pedigree. This panel aims to raise awareness about the polytemporal, the asynchronous, and the anachronic from a variety of perspectives. Featuring:

Hadji Bakara, Assistant Professor, English Language and Literature, University of Michigan
Geoff Eley, Karl Pohrt Distinguished University Professor of Contemporary History, University of Michigan
Jennifer Nelson, Assistant Professor, History of Art, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Catherine Sanok, Professor, English Language and Literature, University of Michigan
Helmut Puff (chair), Elizabeth L. Eisenstein Collegiate Professor of History and Germanic Languages

This event is part of the Friday Series of the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies. It is made possible by a generous contribution from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.
