Title: An Imperial Village: Communications, Media, and Globalization in Modern India
Date: Thu. Apr 02, 2009
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Description: Dr. Chandrika Kaul will be leading a roundtable discussion on establishing the Center for India Studies at USF. The talk hopes to shed light on the historical origins of the current globalized media and communication environment by means of a study of the part played by communication technologies in the expansion and governance of the British Empire. It also seeks to explore the political culture and communicational impact of Britain's global empire through an analysis of certain key aspects of its relationship with Britain's largest imperial possession in the 19th and 20th centuries -- the sub-continent of India. Dr. Kaul is currently co-authoring a book on the new history of India titled: "An Indian History of the Raj", as well as a monograph on "India: Communications, Media and Globalization in the 19th and 20th centuries." She currently holds the position of vice president of the South Asian Studies Association and is also co-chair of the History section of the International Association of Media and Communication Research (IAMCR). Refreshments will be served from 10:30 to 11:30 am and the discussion will be from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.
