This symposium asks what are the various ways of conceiving and knowing the past – beyond the linear, diachronic, documentary past of Western or academic history of today – and how might these inform the practice of researching the ‘deep’ human past? Further, how might the past be understood in relationship to the present, and what might this mean for the study of history?
