How to navigate an archive

Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB.
Wednesday 12th December
5pm – 7pm

Research training by Prof. Carlo Ginzburg
The event takes place at the Woburn Suite, G22/26, Ground Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

In collaboration with the School of Advanced Study

Professor Ginzburg is one of the most influential cultural historians, best known for his pioneering work on micro-history and case studies at the intersection of historiography and law.
As well as being a significant historian, Professor Ginzburg has been an influential innovator in methods, having written about the nature of historical evidence in Miti emblemi spie (1986; Clues, Myths and the Historical Method, 1989), and about the idea of historical proof in History, Rhetoric and Proof (1999). He has also reflected in his historical works on the nature of his own practice, highlighting in particular the importance of the connections between social anthropology and cultural history.

In this research training, he will talk about how to navigate an archive, in particular his research experiences in looking for witchcraft trials in the State Archive of Venice and in the ecclesiastical Archive of Udine.
