Potential History: Unlearning Imperialism, a Lecture and Workshop – (open to the public)

She argues that the institutions that make our world, from archives and museums to ideas of sovereignty and human rights to history itself, are all dependent on imperial modes of thinking. Imperialism has segmented populations into differentially governed groups, continually emphasized the possibility of progress while it tries to destroy what came before, and voraciously seeks out the new by sealing the past away in dusty archival boxes and the glass vitrines of museums.

Water and Land: Words that Contain Worlds: Lecture with Luisa Cortesi – (open to the public)
How do people who live in the midst of floods think about water? Informed by multidisciplinary long-term ethnographic fieldwork, this presentation presents ethnographic evidence that, in North Bihar, land and water are thought of as intimate correspondence with each other. By virtue of comparison, then, this ethnographic encounter is held to defy other ontologies of water that see the two substances as in opposition. Since ontologies of natural substances are often "watertight," mutually exclusive and unable to adapt, this presentation suggests, their encounter may result in semiotic conflict.
