Lecture at CELAS

The Centre for European and Latin American Studies is organizing a lecture on Reflections on Kenneth Pomeranz’s:  The Great Divergence on 21st September 2015.

The lecture will be delivered by Professor R. Gopinath from the Department of History and Culture, Jamia Millia Islamia. He is an Ex Member Secretary of the Indian Council of Historic Research (ICHR).

Kenneth Pomeranz’s The Great Divergence: China, Europe, and the Making of the Modern World Economy (Princeton University Press, 2000) ranks as one of the most influential books published so far in the 21st century. Pomeranz examines the classic question: How do we account for the rise of the West and the economic divergence between Europe and Asia? Pomeranz’s book challenges Eurocentric explanations of this question which continues to be at the centre of debate among social scientists.

Date: 21st September 2015
Time: 11:00am
Venue: Library Room, Centre for European and Latin American Studies, Nelson Mandela House

All masters and research students can be a part of this lecture.
