Join our Author meets critics session with author of Geographies of Anticolonialism, Dr Andy Davies of the University of Liverpool.
The book explores Indian anticolonialism using a varied selection of historical sources and literature. Anticolonialism can be defined as internal and external resistance to practices and by-products of colonial rule including racism, militarism and resource exploitation, and is explicitly political in nature.
This panel discussion, chaired by Dr Chih Yuan Woon of the National University of Singapore, brings together geographers including Dr Andy Davies, Dr Sneha Krishnan from the University of Oxford, Dr Federico Ferretti from University College Dublin, and Professor Tariq Jazeel from University College London to assess the contributions of the book. The discussion will look at Andy’s focus on anticolonialism (rather than post- or de-colonialism), the specifics of the book’s arguments in understanding Indian and British colonial histories, and its broader contributions to debates within historical and political geographies.
Author meets critics: Geographies of Anticolonialism will take place on at 1.00pm on Friday 4 September. Find out more and register now.
