Dipesh Chakrabarty: Provinicializing Europe in a Warming World

This lecture attempts to bring together—using examples from South Asia—the two distinct areas of critical thinking in the Humanities: global warming discourse and postcolonial criticism. The lecture will offer some reflections on questions of colonialism, modernity, and modernization as we reconfigure them in a warming world.

Dipesh Chakrabarty is the Lawrence A. Kimpton Distinguished Professor of History and South Asian Studies at the University of Chicago. He is the author of Provincializing Europe: Postcolonial Thought and Historical Difference (Princeton, 2008; 2000).
