Studio 2 at EMPAC

Alfred Crosby, author of The Measure of Reality: Quantification and Western Society, 1250–1600, will speak about time from the historical perspective detailed of Western Europe's adoption of quantitative approaches to time, space, finance, art, and music. In a Glass Hour is a series devoted to exploring the topic of time from the diverse perspectives of media theorists, scientists, artists, historians, journalists and others. Taking a broadly interdisciplinary approach to this singular subject, the series will point to the elasticity of this pervasive topic.
