Event Description:
Sulzberger Parlor, Third Floor, Barnard Hall

Why gender and empire? What have these two in common? In this talk, Philippa Levine explores why and in what ways a gendered perspective brings to life hitherto neglected facets of the experience of empire for both those who colonized and those who were colonized.

Philippa Levine is Mary Helen Thompson Centennial Professor in the Humanities at the University of Texas at Austin and Co-Director of the University?s Program in British Studies. Her books include Prostitution, Race and Politics: Policing Venereal Disease in the British Empire (2003). Her Oxford Handbook of the History of Eugenics, co-edited with Alison Bashford, won the 2011 Cantemir Prize. The 2nd edition of The British Empire, Sunrise to Sunset appears this spring. It has been translated into Italian and Japanese. She is at present writing a book on colonial nakedness.

Sponsored by the Consortium for Critical Studies (CCIS) and Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies (WGSS) at Barnard.
