EIHS Graduate Student Workshop: Colonized Geographies

Friday, December 6, 2019
12:00-2:00 PM
1014 Tisch Hall Map
How do history and agency alter geographies and landscapes? Samia Khatun’s research has explored the spaces and scars left behind by colonization, arguing that “histories remain inscribed on the land itself.” This panel explores the concept of colonized geographies and will examine how the borders of colonized spaces are enforced, negotiated, and blurred. Speakers will approach this theme from comparative literature, political science, and history, providing new perspectives on the creation of colonized space, as well as how history operates both within and outside of its boundaries.
