Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies pres.

EIHS Graduate Student Workshop: Scaling Time and Space

How do fluctuations in scale impact the way we look at the past? Ruth Mostern’s research spans millennia and examines how local practices and political agendas influenced the ecology of the Yellow River. This panel will explore the ways in which spaces are created, managed, and contested over time. Shifting between scales, speakers will discuss the interconnections and conflicts between the local and the universal, with case studies ranging from the localized spaces of the workroom and kitchen to the expanses of empire and imagined nationhood.
