Asian Studies Colloquium

Harmon Room, DeWitt Wallace Library

Prof. Prasenjit Duara, Oscar Tang Chair of East Asian Studies at Duke University speaks on: The Crisis of Planetary Sustainability: The Long View from Asia. The rise of Asia and China in particular has been accompanied by the need to project a new, more just vision of the world that is not simply a new hegemony. Many Chinese intellectuals have sought inspiration in their historical and transcendent universalisms such as ‘all-under-heaven’ (tianxia). This talk explores the conceptual and political framework for understanding transcendence in post-Western modernity.
