Joel Kaye: The History of Ideas, c. 1250-1375

Humanities Institute: Friday, 5 December, 12:30

Joel Kaye of Barnard College will present “The History of Ideas, c. 1250-1375, through the Lens of the History of Balance.” The discussion will center on Kaye’s new book, A History of Balance, c.1250-1375: The Emergence of a New Model of Equilibrium and Its Impact on Thought. We are excited about bringing a prominent scholar of the history of ideas who is eager to engage a broader audience beyond his own field. So that we can hold a seminar-style discussion, we ask the audience to read the Introduction to his book, if possible. For more information, please contact Fiona Somerset, fiona.somerset@uconn.edu.

Coffee and cookies will be served, and you are welcome to bring your lunch.
