All Day:
5.00pm:
  • War and Genocide in South Sudan
  • Clémence Pinaud (Indiana University, Bloomington)
  • Using more than a decade's worth of fieldwork in South Sudan, Clémence Pinaud here explores the relationship between predatory wealth accumulation, state formation, and a form of racism―extreme ethnic group entitlement―that has the potential to result in genocide.

5.00pm:
  • Recovering China’s Maritime History
  • Valerie Hansen (Stanley Woodward Professor of History, Yale University)
  • China’s long history as a powerful agrarian state has distracted many from its very real engagement with the ocean. Its contacts with South and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and East Africa date back to the year 1000 and even before.
