History Forum Talk by A&H Dean Peter Arnade

April 30, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki A201-

Microhistory burst upon the historical scene in the 1970s and is now almost half a century old, the rebel child comfortably in middle age. This talk will detail microhistory’s past practice and current status, and ponder its importance in the era of the global and transnational. Dr. Arnade will consider his own scholarly adventures with microhistory in Honor, Vengeance and Sexual Scandal: Pardon Letters in the Burgundian Low Countries (Cornell University Press, 2015). Such 15th-century pardon letters give tantalizingly direct glimpses into the world of ordinary people in extra-ordinary trouble.
