The Bill Kellogg UNA Discussion Series
Upcoming discussions will be announced as more information becomes available.
Third October Discussion Series:
Dr. Angus Lockyer, November 3rd
Our next meeting of the Bill Kellogg UNA-BC Discussion Series will be held on Thursday November 3 at 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Arapahoe Room of the Main Branch of the Boulder Public Library. Dr. Angus Lockyer Visiting Scholar at CU Boulder’s Center for Asian Studies will be our featured speaker.
Dr. Lockyer (PhD, Stanford University) taught Japanese, East Asian, and global history at SOAS University of London for fifteen years, where he also served as Associate Director for Learning and Teaching, and designed and directed an undergraduate program in Global Liberal Arts. Since 2019 he has been a Visiting Scholar in CU Boulder's Center for Asian Studies. His writing has focused on Japan in the 19th and 20th centuries, exploring the relationship between political economy and culture in modern development. More generally, he is interested in the past and present of the urban world, which he explores in a new podcast, historicity. The title of his presentation is "The World Order in the Anthropocene: The View from Northeast Asia." In this session, he will outline the way in which East Asian conceptions of political economy, both traditional ("Confucian") and modern ("bureaucratic authoritarian industrializing regimes"), are very different from the Euro-American practice of international relations, which underwrites, for now, the global political economy.
We hope you can attend and will help spread the word to other interested people. If you have any questions or suggestions about the series, please contact Robert McNown at 303-726-7153 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
