Ernst Kantorowicz on Methods and Postage Stamps

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 -
5:00pm to 7:00pm
History Faculty, George Street
Colin Matthew Room

The TORCH Crisis, Extremes, and Apocalypse network are hosting a talk on ''Ernst Kantorowicz on Methods and Postage Stamps' given by Professor Robert Lerner (Northwestern).

IThe talk will treat two unpublished sources: Kantorowicz's notes for his "Methods" course for graduate students at Berkeley, 1948-1950, and his paper, "Postal Stamps and the Historian." The notes give new insights into the nearly inebriating range of thought of a great historian and polymath; the paper displays the great historian at work in an unsuspected direction.

Professor Lerner will also be discussing his recent biography of Ernst Kantorowicz.
