Professor François Hartog will lecture as part of CIDRAL's Semester 2 programme for the 2015-16 academic year, themed around Cultures and Temporalities.
Might recent and unfolding transformations within the horizon of our historical experiences point towards a new historical condition, a condition on which history as a discipline would have yet to secure a firm grasp? Let us understand historical experience as the various ways in which people, on the horizon of their historically constituted social worlds go about imagining, mediating, and representing to themselves the past and its meaning for the present.
François Hartog is a professor at the École des hautes etudes en sciences sociales and holds the Chair of Ancient and Modern Historiography. He is the author of many works, including The Mirror of Herodotus: The Representation of the Other in the Writing of History and Croire en l'histoire.
