Empire in Africa II

Friday, November 30, 2012 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Room 918
The Weatherhead East Asian Institute (WEAI) presents "Empire in Africa II" with Mamadou Diouf, Columbia University, History and discussant Partha Chatterjee, Columbia University, History and Political Science from the series "After the Postcolonial Turn: Global Perspectives."

No registration required.

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.
