JessieChilds, Lara Feigel and David Reynolds will reflect on the trends in history writing today and will discuss in particular this year’s shortlist of the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize, which they judged. Spanning the centuries from Ancient Rome to the Second World War, the 2016 shortlist ranges from the epic panorama of Frankopan’sThe Silk Roads and Mary Beard’sSPQR to the personal close-up of one Indian family in the Second World War in Raghu Karnad’s Farthest Field. There are tales of history and literature intertwining in James Shapiro’s 1606 and of human dignity surviving amid unspeakable horror in Sarah Helm’sIf This is a Woman. The winner of the 2016 prize, Nicholas Stargardt’sThe German War, is the story of ordinary lives in the midst of war, described by the judges as 'elegant and eloquent'.
