In this seminar, we will be discussing "Cures from Within," an in-progress chapter of Anjuli Raza Kolb's current book project. Professor Kolb joins us from Williams College, where she teaches colonial and postcolonial literature. Her current book project considers historical and discursive points of connection between the discipline and narratives of epidemic, and the practices and representations of anti-colonial insurgency and terrorism in Europe, North Africa, and South Asia. She is also completing a collection of poems called Janaab-e Shikva, after the Pakistani poet Iqbal.
Please join us for lunch and a fantastic discussion in 201 Umrath Hall. As always, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm attendance and receive a copy of the paper.
