Talk: 'The Colonial Invention of Global History'
Thursday, 14 March 2013 from 17:30 to 19:00 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
UCL-Institute of the Americas proudly hosts Prof Mark Thurner (University of Florida) to deliver this talk, in which he argues that global history was invented in a colonial "intervention of interpretation" or "commentary" on imperial history. Citing examples from colonial and postcolonial Peru, Professor Thurner will develop his argument through a series of meditations on the enunciations in historical discourse of the ruling proper names of global history in the modern age: Peru, Spain, America, Indias, and Europe.
