John C. Swanson (Guest Fellow, School of History): "Documentary Film is the Future of History-Writing"
von 17:30 bis 18:00
The idea of the After Hours Conversations goes back to Professor Piet Hut, Director of the Program in Interdisciplinary Studies at IAS Princeton, who visited FRIAS back in June of this year.
Here's how it works according to Piet: "At 5:30 pm, someone will give an informal presentation of no more than 10 minutes, intended for a general audience. The topic will be a brief description of a major open problem in his or her field, together with suggestions for possible future progress with respect to that problem. This talk will be followed by 15 minutes of discussion, until 6:00 pm."
Afterwards everyone is free to stay in the lounge and continue discussions, preferably with others not from their own School.
John C. Swanson (Guest Fellow, School of History) will give a short talk entiteld "Documentary Film is the Future of History - Writing".
