Departmental Research Seminar Series 2008/2009
Event Date: 29 April 2009
Two historians – Professor Peregrine Horden and Professor Penelope Corfield – and one geographer – Professor Clive Gamble – explore the relationship between ‘time’ and ‘History’ and how the study of History over long periods of time, or ‘Deep History’, can further an understanding the past. While present research points to a shift in periodisation and classification, teaching History in ‘Deep Time’ is clearly something that has not yet entered the syllabus of undergraduate teaching. The discussion here proposes some practical models.
