What is a crisis?

On May 23, 2016 Inger Kuin en Jacqueline Klooster will present a joint work in progress at the CRASIS Ancient World Seminar with the title ‘What is a crisis? The rhetoric of crisis and order.’

From their abstract:

In writing political history the stakes are high. With this paper we want to question the ‘crisis template’ of ancient historiographers, while at the same time also critically engaging our own paradigms for narrating and framing crises from the ancient past.”
