The Department of History presents

Wrong and Careless Living History Series

Historical Scholarship and Political Engagement

This Wrong & Careless session focuses on the theme of "Historical Scholarship and Political Engagement." The session will feature six Ph.D. students from diverse fields asking questions of Professor Natalie Zemon Davis: Chandra Mur-doch, Julia Rombough, Monica Espaillat-Lizardo, Steve McClellan, Justin Douglas, and David Robinson.

NATALIE ZEMON DAVIS stands in the select category of historical thinkers whose work has reshaped the course of modern historical scholarship in fundamental and lasting ways. The reach and influence of her scholarship is at once deep and global, her contributions continue to shape re-search agendas, and alone her The Return of Martin Guerre has been translated into twenty-four languages. She has been recognized with 40 honorary degrees, has been awarded the 2010 Holberg International Prize and named to the Order of Canada, along with being the second wom-an President of the American Historical Association.

The Wrong and Careless Living History Series began as an effort to foster a closer intellectual community between graduate students and faculty. Meeting once a month, the informal gatherings feature faculty, visiting scholars, and guests. Our sessions this year have included "Food Studies and Histories," "Approaches to International History," and "Negotiating Conversion: Jewish Women and Conversas in Late Medieval Catalonia." Anyone interested in proposing a topic or participating on a panel is encouraged to get in touch!
The Fox and the Fiddle is located at 280 Bloor St and is a fully accessible location. Food will be provided by the Department.
