In memory of Eric Hobsbawm

In memory, but also in celebration, of the work of someone from which many learned and will continue to do so.  Eric Hobsbawm died on the 1st of October.  This is not a testimony of agreement on all matters – but of a debt to somone who invited us to reflect and act in ways that we may not have without having encountered his words.
