IIAS Lunch Lecture

How do we write premodern global history without being trapped into familiar patterns shaped around power, empires, money, wars, and men? How do we escape the story of the nation? One response is to abandon narrative structures. Another is not to use modern national names like ‘China’. Let’s see what happens. Lecture by Naomi Standen, University of Birmingham, UK.
