Measure & Meaning: A Conversation
Presented by Silsila: Center for Material Histories
New York University
Date: Thursday, April 30th
Time: 6:00-8:00pm EST
The idea of measure is intrinsic to the idea of modernity itself, often seen as an index of the quantitative values that underpin scientific rationalism. However, a transcultural and trans-regional perspective suggests a much more complicated relationship between qualitative and quantitative dimensions of measure. This conversation explores the meanings of measure and its centrality to forms of social practice in pre- and early modern Europe and the Islamic world.
This event will take place as a live Webinar at 6pm EDT (New York time). To register as an attendee, please visit Silsila’s website. Registration is required.
