An online guest lecture by Professor Mark Smith on Wednesday 8th February, 4pm UK time. The paper will negotiate methodological considerations around the field of sensory history, and is entitled ‘The Last Reenactment and Applied Sensory History: How History and the Senses Can Make a Difference’.
Professor Smith is a Carolina Distinguished Professor of History at the University of South Carolina, the author of numerous books on the American South and a foundational thinker in the field of sensory history. His research is concerned with helping to restore the full sensory texture of history and examine what the senses in addition to seeing might be able to tell us about historical experience and causation.
This event is hosted by the University of Bristol’s Sensory Research Group, and given Professor Smith’s formative work in the field of sensory history, and we are very excited to host him. Please visit our website to register via Zoom: https://sensesandsensations.blogs.bristol.ac.uk/events/
