Saree Makdisi Lecture, "Making London Western"


Making England Western: Occidentalism, Race and Imperial Culture, (Chicago, 2013) explores the cultural and political processes through which England turned itself into a recognizably Western country in the nineteenth century, and includes chapters on Wordsworth, Austen, Byron, Southey, Macaulay, and Dickens.  Professor Makdisi will discuss the “civilization” of London through the nineteenth century, addressing the social and political processes involved in the active production of a distinctively western metropole.

This event is sponsored by the English department and the Reorientations group, co-sponsored by ECSG, NCF, History, and Comp. Lit.
