Empire in the Middle East (Rashid Khalidi)


Date: Oct 11, 2012

Speaker: Rashid Khalidi, Columbia University
Discussant: Victoria de Grazia, Columbia University

This event is the second 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.
