Panel Discussion: Deep History (Method Series)

Thursday Apr 13, 2017 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM | GAR 4.100


This panel explores how an emphasis on long-term changes in ecology and neurobiology has challenged many of the research methods, conceptual frameworks, and forms of periodization that have been traditionally employed by historians, particularly those studying the more recent past. "Deep history" approaches history over centuries or millennia, going beyond the written record in its search of evidence, and engaging with the work of archaeologists, climatologists, geologists, and other non-historians.

Featuring:

Erika Bsumek | Associate Professor of History, University of Texas at Austin

Mark Metzler | Professor of History and Asian Studies, University of Texas at Austin

Megan Raby | Assistant Professor of History and Asian Studies, University of Texas at Austin
