Time travel and reconstruction


Third session in the series Reconstruction matters - Keynotes and conversations, autumn 2017.

Keynote by Bodil Petersson, Associate professor, Dept. of Cultural Science, LNU, on the theme "Time travel and reconstruction".

"What are the benefits of time travel and anachronism in relation to reconstructing the past? The point of departure is that we are all inevitably entangled with the present with all our interpretations and values and that we will have to cope with that while interpreting past times. How do we access our ideas of the past through this filter of the present without being disillusioned or disappointed concerning the possibilities to access ideas of the past through for example archaeology and history? The way forward might be found through application of perspectives relating to time travel and anachronism as method."

Followed by conversations with Jonathan Westin, Department of Conservation and Gabi Dolff Bonekämper, TU Berlin

The series Reconstruction matters - Keynotes and conversations, is set up around keynotes that will bring insights into a spectrum of interpretations of, and contexts for, the concept. The keynotes are followed by conversations where scholars from different disciplines and fields meet in informed discussions, in particular taking on spatial and temporal aspects of the concept.

Join us for snacks after the session.
