Another day, another episode up! This one is actually something of a retread, but because I posted it in a different format elsewhere, I’d like to re-publicize it. Some time ago, I engaged in a series of blog posts – cum discussion with John Raimo, a friend from Oxford and Princeton and an intellectual historian of 20th century Europe, on a recent excellent book, Cartographies of Time. The book, written by Professors Anthony Grafton (Princeton) and Daniel Rosenberg (Oregon), embarks on a history of the timeline, or, more broadly, how humans (mostly in the West) have sought to depict and graphically present time over the centuries.

I also just recorded an in-depth interview with Niksa Spremic of Exeter College, Oxford, on Croatian history and Catholicism, which should be up later tonight. For now, I’m knee-deep in Persian texts, phone calls, and (later this afternoon) an Amartya Sen lecture. With Timothy Snyder coming to give a talk on his Bloodlands tomorrow, it’s a good time to be in Oxford.
