15 October | GLASS Lecture | Dipesh Chakrabarty
Professor Dipesh Chakrabarty (History, University of Chicago) will deliver a lecture on: Scales of History: On Subaltern, Global, and Planetary Studies. All are welcome.
Date & Time
15 October 2015
Reception to follow in the Faculty Club Restaurant
This lecture will look at the question of how conceptions of history that emerged out of postcolonial and global contexts of the late-twentieth century fit in or conflict with emergent ideas about very large-scale Big or Deep Histories. The lecture will also discuss possible futures, in an age of major planetary problems, for historiographical traditions that once sought - and perhaps still seek - to critique Eurocentric constructions of the world.
