Long History, Deep Time: Deepening Histories of Place

The contributions to this collection edited by Ann McGrath and Mary Anne Jebb ignite the possibilities of what the spaces and expanses of history might be. The authors reflect upon the need for appropriate, feasible timescales for history, pointing out some of the obstacles encountered in earlier efforts to slice human time into thematic categories. Time and history are considered from the perspective of physics, archaeology, literature, western and Indigenous philosophy.
