China and the World Historical: Twentieth-century Chinese Perspectives on the Global and Globality

Rebecca Karl
(Associate Professor, Department of History, New York University)

March 3, 2015, Tuesday, 4:30-6:00pm,
Room 730, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus

This talk discusses both an historical question ― what is the “world historical” ― and the ways in which Chinese intellectuals in the twentieth century have configured and reconfigured this question in relation to shifting domestic and international conditions. The talk is intended to be at once a philosophical rumination and an historical exploration.

Bio: Rebecca E. Karl teaches history at New York University. She is the author, most recently, of Mao Zedong and China in the Twentieth-Century World: A Concise History and previously of Staging the World: Chinese Nationalism at the Turn of the Twentieth Century. She has two forthcoming works: The Magic of Concepts: Essays on Philosophy and the Economic in Twentieth Century China (Duke University Press); and a translation (with Zhong Xueping) of Cai Xiang, Revolution and its Narratives (also Duke University Press).
