Wednesday 9/13 /23
Dr. Sugata Bose, Gardiner Professor of Oceanic History and Affairs at Harvard University.
Drawing on his forthcoming book Asia after Europe: Imagining a Continent in the Long Twentieth Century (The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2024), Sugata Bose will interpret artistic and literary interactions across Asia by tracking the intersecting journeys of an array of Asian intellectual and cultural figures. These interactions span a whole spectrum of intimacies, affective bonds, solidarities, and alliances transcending boundaries of the nation. The presentation will illuminate a facet of the history of Asia as a connected space after the European colonial presence as part of a conceptual history of Asian universalism and cosmopolitanism.
