How Big Or Little Should The Histories We Teach Be?

CL History Special Interest Group Research Seminar and Workshop, Wednesday 19th January, 6-7.30pm, GMT.

Professor Marnie Hughes-Warrington, University of South Australia

Ever wondered what size the histories we teach should be? Should we explore the biggest, or the smallest stories with students? In this interactive workshop and seminar, Marnie Hughes-Warrington will guide a discussion using insights and practical examples from her newest book, Big and Little Histories: Sizing Up Ethics in Historiography (with Anne Martin, 2021). A free, worldwide open access copy of the book is available at this link. She will outline how the shifting sizes and scales of all kinds of histories can help us to better understand ethics, and the variety of ethical views in our world. This will set the stage for a glimpse of her new project, on whether machines can write histories. No background in history theory, historiography or philosophy are needed: all are warmly welcome.
