Sensory History: An Introduction

Lecture Description

Do we rely on different senses now than the ones we relied on in the past? How have our senses affected history? How have the senses themselves changed? What role have the senses played in the ways we discriminate, experience, and understand? Exploring illuminating examples from antiquity to the twenty-first century, this lecture serves as an introduction to the emerging field of sensory history.
