Universal History

Anthropologies of The Present
Susan Buck-Morss: Universal History

Tuesday 19 January 18.30 ˆ 20.00
Tate Britain, Clore Auditorium

Tracing the sources of globalisation without the boundaries of nation
or civilisation resurrects the project of universal history on new
ground. In this talk Susan Buck-Morss argues it is to be excavated not
across collective boundaries, but without them. The richest finds are
on the edge of culture.

Susan Buck-Morss is Professor of Political Philosophy and Social
Theory in the Department of Government at Cornell University, New York

Her latest book is Hegel, Haiti and Universal History (2009).
