Politics, History & State Making: A Critique of Cultural History

Seminar

Seminar on Politics, History & State Making: A Critique of Cultural History

Erik Ringmar presents a paper which provides a first stab at a question of historiography: to what extent is is possible to recover the lived experiences of people of the past?  And if it is possible, how should it be done? He argues that the discipline known as "cultural history" is not up to the task. In the paper he sketches a line of possible criticism, drawing inspiration from recent recent work by Charles Taylor and Herbert Dreyfus, which juxtaposes cultural history and a phenomenological understanding of lived experiences.
