I’ve long aspired to teach History the way @DalrympleWill writes History.

This is an illuminating insight into his narrative approach to writing History, and why going to places the stories happened + characters lived is as important as going through archives.

In linguistics, the irrealis mood indicates that "a certain situation or action is not known to have happened at the moment the speaker is talking.” Really enjoyed speaking with @aaciman about his new book Homo Irrealis @Mint_Lounge #ConversationsAtLarge

Astounding statistics here. 700,000 foreign-born people left London in one year, or 8% of the population. Attributed to covid, but also as Brexit happened. Kind of population shift one expects over decades not months. via @FT
