Empire in Africa (Charles Piot)


Date: Nov 30, 2012

Speaker: Charles Piot, Columbia University

Discussants:
Partha Chatterjee, Columbia University
Marc Edelmen, Hunter College

This event is the third installment of the 2012-13 workshop series, After the Postcolonial Turn: Global Perspectives, co-sponsored by the Committee on Global Thought, the Departments of Anthropology, East Asian Languages and Cultures, and History, and the Blinken European, Middle East, African, Harriman, and Weatherhead East Asian Institutes (inaugurating the new Institutes Global Connections programs).

On the premise that post-colonialism (the theory and scholarly practice) and post-coloniality (the historical condition) have both reached a new stage, this series of informal workshop-discussions will compare the specificities of colonial histories across the globe in order to identify commonalities and differences toward the goal of a new conceptualization of those all-too-well-worn words: colonialism and empire.
