Dipesh Chakrabarty–Climate of History Events–Feb. 25-Mar. 3, 2015

Dr. Chakrabarty is the Lawrence A. Kimpton Distinguished Service Professor of History at the University of Chicago; many of you may know him from his landmark 2000 book Provincializing Europe: Postcolonial Thought and Historical Difference.  Prof. Chakrabarty’s more recent articles on the “Climate of History” use perspectives from the environmental humanities to explore how our vision of humanity is changing in the age of global warming.  His visit to the University of South Carolina includes a public lecture, smaller seminars, and a symposium featuring invited scholars from a variety of disciplines and institutions.  More detailed information see here.
