For the 2019 Address we present:
Professor Ludmilla Jordanova, University of Durham
"Only Connect": Reflections of Historical Practice
Friday 11 October, 10-12 in O100
Professor Ludmilla Joradanova, University of Durham, will deliver the 2019 Department of History Address.
Professor Jordanova is Director of the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture in Durham and has inspired students and scholars of history with her works on methodology and visual and material culture.
Her publications include History in Practice (Arnold, London (2000, 2006 and 2019)), Defining Features: Scientific and Medical Portraits 1660-2000 (Reaktion Books/National Portrait Gallery, London (2000)), The Look of the Past: Visual and Material Evidence in Historical Practice (Cambridge University Press (2012)) and Physicians and Their Images (Royal College of Physicians, London (2018)).
As we are expecting the third edition of History in Practice to be out while Professor Jordanova is visiting us in Odense in October, the address is entitled “Only Connect": Reflections on Historical Practice and will pose the question: How do we evoke visual intelligence in our academic practice?
