Chronographics 2010 Capstone Lecture
Is history linear? Daniel Rosenberg's talk will explore the history of the uses of the graphic line in the works of historians from the beginning of the print age to the present. It will examine the variety of visual tools employed in the study and representation of history and the rise of the linear timeline as a paradigmatic form.
Rosenberg is an intellectual historian specializing in questions of historical representation with a focus on 18th century France and Britain, and includes areas of history of language, philosophy, and art.
