paper topic

10 Dec

     Well, apparantly my paper is a critique of the historical method. It will look out our unending desire to make linear narratives out of history, even tho history is anything but a linear narrative. If it could be a narrative, it would be a different one for different people. It’s a strange thing to have all sorts of facts, references, ancient texts and artifacts which all relate to Akhenaten, and seem to “tell” a story but to find that they don’t tell a story. They show that a story happened. And we will never ever know that story. And yet we have an unending desire to figure it out. And that, apparantly, is what my paper is about, since that is what I said when I presented my paper topic this morning. It’s good to know these things.
