Catch up on History after Hobsbawm

image_previewA week after the History After Hobsbawm conference finished, there is still time for those who missed on sessions to catch up with what was discussed.

The conference website – historyafterhobsbawm.wordpress.com – has a collection of written reports covering most of the sections, while Backdoor Broadcasting has recordings of the conference plenaries* as well as Professor Mark Mazower’s inaugural Eric Hobsbawm Memorial Lecture. These can all be found at backdoorbroadcasting.net/2014/04/history-after-hobsbawm.
