12 November - What keeps us going? The significance of humanities scholarship in challenging times
Prof. Kiri Paramore (Asian Studies)
Thursday 12 November 4-5 pm
MS Teams (join Team: 'What keeps us going? Humanities discussion forum')
The next meeting of the discussion forum and reading group takes place on 12 November, 4-5 pm on Teams ('What keeps us going?' Humanities Discussion Forum). We invite all interested colleagues and postgraduate researchers in CACSSS to join us for an informal discussion, in which we exchange thoughts about our work in the humanities disciplines, sharing what matters to us as scholars and teachers, reflecting on our research as a source of continuity, consolation and critical insight in times of difficulty, and providing each other with support. Each meeting will take as its starting point a brief reading (texts to be pre-circulated and briefly introduced by their nominator). The text for 12 November is Robert Novalis, White World Order, Black Power Politics: The Birth of American International Relations (Cornell University Press 2015), introduced by Prof. Kiri Paramore (Asian Studies). We focus in our discussion on pp. 1-23 ('Introduction: A Mongrel American Social Science'). Copies are available in the 'Files' area of the Teams channel (whole book).
