At the End of Time: Thinking with Water

Thursday, 30 August, 2018 - 12:30

WiSER and Oceanic Humanities invite you to a lunchtime seminar by

Dilip Menon

This talk addresses the question of what it means to think fluvially, even as we are faced with the prospect of not fire, but water, the next time. How does water affect thinking when one lives by the sea? Or does it? Or is it taken for granted, as in Borges’s remark that there are no camels in the Koran? My current project on writing history in colonial India engages with the question of water, oceans and floods as central to the imagination of history and region.
