George Kenney: "Early modern European history with Dr. Craig Koslofsky" @ Electric Politics
The night seems tucked away, safely out of sight. But is it, really? And how does what happens at night shape and inform what happens during the day? To explore some of these and related questions I turned to Dr. Craig M. Koslofsky, author most recently of Evening's Empire: A History of the Night in Early Modern Europe (Cambridge University Press, 2011). The subject, obviously, is vast, but for me Craig's book is heuristically very interesting, particularly, perhaps, in how it suggests values can be created and forgotten.
Anyhow, give the podcast a listen, and I hope you enjoy it. As always, don't hesitate to forward the link.
I'm now, btw, officially on vacation! All of June and indeterminately into July, contingent, in part, on how well my new puppy Casey's house training progresses. Please check the website for schedule updates.
