Cultural Globalisation Conference – May 2013

A two day conference entitled Cultural Globalisation in Historical Perspective: Actors, Arts and Artefacts will take place at the Confucius Institute on 12-13 May. This international workshop brings together a group of renowned historians working on China, Japan, Africa, India and Latin America.

Globalisation is seen as a recent modern phenomenon but in fact has a long history which can be traced back over centuries. This conference will concentrate particularly on the 19th century which has been labelled as “the century of globalisation”.

The opening address will be given by Professor Tom Devine while the keynote address at 6pm on Wed 12 May comes from Arif Dirlik. For full details of the programme, the participants and the papers please visit our micro-site.
