Lecture by Prof. em. David Arnold on 25 April 2013
| || As part of the Research Colloquium of the South Asia Institute, Prof. em. David Arnold (Department of History, University of Warwick, UK) gives a lecture on the topic "Intimate Histories and State Stories: The politicization of Poison in Colonial India". |
The lecture discusses the social, legal, and governmental dimensions of poisons and poisoning in modern India and focusses thereby on two key aspects: First how certain substances came to be designated as ‘poisons’ and second the connection of the political representation of poisoning and the threat to order, security and legitimate commerce.
The lecture will take place on 25 April 2013, 18.15pm in room Z10 of the South Asia Institute.
