Paper/speech by Dag Herbjørnsrud at the conference «Circluding History II«, as part of «Thinking together»:

«Thinking Together 2019 looks at history and historiography through a politically focused lens of time. In its fifth year of investigation, the Thinking Together Conference scrutinizes common and dogged conceptions of linear time and history in order to disclose their underlying political matrices. What are the variegated politics behind historically contingent philosophies of history? What conceptions of time are they based on? And how do they, in turn, influence views onto the present, the ways of relating to the past and the ability to shape the future? …

Following its speculative trajectories, this conference will investigate and (re)imagine relations to the past, present and future, alternative genealogies, decolonized, global, connected as well as queer histories.»

Participants: Anke Charton (AT)Elizabeth Freeman (USA)Amelia Groom (AU/DE)Dag Herbjørnsrud (NO)Björn Schmelzer (BE)Rolando Vásquez (MX/NL) and others.
