TLI Reading Lab: Colonialism in Question
This Reading Lab text is Frederick Cooper's, Colonialism in Question. Theory, Knowledge, History (2005)
Background Text (recommended): Mark Mazower, Governing the World. The History of an Idea (2012)
Since November 2014, the Transnational Law Institute at King’s College London has been hosting a regular reading and discussion forum on seminal and new writings in transnational law, governance, and political legal theory. The READING LAB is an informal gathering to revisit or discover scholarly contributions to an emerging field where law and development meet and is open to anyone interested. There is only one rule: anyone attending ought to have read the assigned text.
Over the course of the next academic year, the Reading Lab will be hosted by the Transnational Law Institute in collaboration with the International Development Institute at King’s College London. Accompanying the Reading Lab is a Transnational Law LL.M. module of the same title at The Dickson Poon School of Law, which is cross-listed to the International Development Institute and the Department of War Studies.
There will be refreshments.
