The series “Wave/History/Time” invites us to rethink the concept of historical time. Encompassing a mix of disciplines—architectural history, legal theory, philosophy, gender and sexuality studies, history of science, and classics—these talks will serially investigate the role of time and temporality in cultural practice and experience.
The title “Wave” stands for a range of possibilities: the materiality and repetitions of sound and light; the measurement of mechanical, electromagnetic, and neurophysiological waves; successive iterations of political and artistic movements; environmental flows; and movements of space-time itself, destabilizing settled assumptions about the relationship of past experience to anticipated future.
