About seven hundred people have visited the lecture of Carlo Ginzburg — an outstanding Italian historian, one of the pioneers in microhistory. Ginzburg was invited to Moscow by Poletaev Institute for Theoretical and Historical Studies in the Humanities (Higher School of Economics). His first lecture was on the problem of method, stereotypes and commitment in the humanities. On 3—5 June professor Ginzburg delivers two more lectures: "Unintentional Revelations: Reading History Against the Grain", "On Small Differences: Ekphrasis and Connoisseurship". More than 1700 people have registered for them. See the photos from the first lecture.
