Faculty

How can globalization be understood via wine? Can we 'provincialize Europe' from knowledge production? What is knowledge? How can we envision a more just way of engaging with the historical past and the colonial legacy in Asia? These are some of the questions our faculties are asking on a daily basis and our questions are inflected in our teachings.

All office hours are conducted via Zoom until further notice. Replace "[at]" with "@" when sending email.
