This talk is part of CAPI's Global South Colloquium programming, organized by CAPI Senior Research Fellow Neilesh Bose, an Assistant Professor and Canada Research Chair with UVic's Department of History:

CAPI's Global South Colloquium centers the Global South into ongoing conversations about the making of the modern world. The colloquium serves as a forum for faculty, students, and all members of the UVic community to focus on the Global South, traditionally referring to South Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East’s histories, cultures, and politics. More than a geographical orientation to the “non-West,” the colloquium poses the Global South as a provocation to orient discussions about the world-system, its contours, inequities, and sources of power, including a focus not divided by geography but placement within global histories and practices.
