The Trouble with Timelines: Chronology, Linearity, and Form in 18th and 19th Century Europe

This work will challenge the notion that the timeline is a natural representation of historical time, and it will show for the first time how the form of the timeline developed during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The project not only fills a gap in the history of historical thought but demonstrates the importance of extending our critical view to include the actual objects and images through which the historical imagination is materialized.
