South Asia Seminar

Thu, November 1, 2007 | Meyerson Conference Room, WCH 4.118

3:30 PM

Research interests: I am currently doing research on the reproduction of imperial forms of power, authority, and inequality under globalization, during the evolution of capitalism since 1700. I focus particularly on southern Asia and on spatial dimensions of capitalst economic development comprised by territoriality and mobility. I am most concerned with the transformation of imperial forms since 1945 inside the world of national states, and its implications for egalitarian struggles today.

Teaching interests: My courses concentrate on economic development and political and social change as they affect human living conditions. My courses explore the process of "entitlement" in various dimensions, places, and times, within a very long-term temporarl framework of comparative world history, focusing substantively on Asia from the Mediterannean to the Pacific.
