Chaitanya Sambrani invited to speak at the Royal Historical Society 2018 Symposium

Tuesday 12 June 2018

Chaitanya Sambrani has been invited to speak at the Royal Historical Society 2018 Symposium, University of Oxford, in his talk titled 'Images beyond borders: transnational aspirations in Indian and Indonesian modernist art'.

In the 150th anniversary year of The Royal Historical Society, this symposium focuses on the nature of the ‘global turn’ in higher education, which has challenged the traditional framework of history research and teaching in universities.  Whether in reframing periodization, or in encouraging large collaborative research projects, this event brings together a range of scholars to discuss the practice of history in higher education now that history departments have been urged to go global.  Speakers will reflect on the methodological, chronological, and geographical frameworks used in the teaching and research of history at universities, and examine both the challenges and opportunities that global approaches offer to history in institutions of higher education.
