Please join us on Friday February 13 as Ania Loomba, Catherine Bryson Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania, presents a talk in Rome Hall 771 (801 22nd St NW) at 3 PM:
Crossing Boundaries: Race, Postcoloniality and the Early Modern
Is the “early” in “early modern” the same as “early” in “early colonial”? How do these temporal boundaries rely on spatial divisions that continue to structure our thinking? Viewing the Renaissance through a postcolonial lens, and viewing the postcolonial in the light of a longer temporal frame, can help us cross some of these boundaries and rethink modernity.
