Carlo Ginzburg on the past, present and future of history

Professor Carlo Ginzburg, one of the greatest historians of our time, is in Israel this week participating in an event at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute marking the 100th birthday of his mother, renowned novelist Natalia Ginzburg. He joins Gilad Halpern to discuss the historian's role in the digital age, the tenets of "micro-history" (the school his work "The Cheese and the Worms" was instrumental in founding), and the fine line between historical narrative and fiction.
