[Webinar] Measure and Meaning—A Conversation: Emanuele Lugli &Amp; Finbarr Barry Flood

Emanuele Lugli, Stanford University and Finbarr Barry Flood, NYU

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 transregional 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.
