Modernity is made and unmade by the anecdotal. Conceived as a literary genre, a narrative element of criticism, and, most crucially, a mode of historiography, the anecdote illuminates the convergences as well as the fault lines cutting across modern practices of knowledge production.

The volume explores uses of the anecdotal in exemplary case studies from the threshold of the early modern to the present.
