Provincializing Europe : postcolonial thought and historical difference by Dipesh Chakrabarty( Book )

51 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 2000, Dipesh Chakrabarty's influential Provincializing Europe addresses the mythical figure of Europe that is often taken to be the original site of modernity in many histories of capitalist transition in non-Western countries. This imaginary Europe, Dipesh Chakrabarty argues, is built into the social sciences. The very idea of historicizing carries with it some peculiarly European assumptions about disenchanted space, secular time, and sovereignty. Measured against such mythical standards, capitalist transition in the third world has often seemed either incomplete or lackin

The calling of history : Sir Jadunath Sarkar and his empire of truth by Dipesh Chakrabarty( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Features a leading scholar in early twentieth-century India, Sir Jadunath Sarkar (1870-1958) was knighted in 1929 and became the first Indian historian to gain honorary membership in the American Historical Association. By the end of his lifetime, however, he had been marginalized by the Indian history establishment, as postcolonial historians embraced alternative approaches in the name of democracy and anti-colonialism. 'The Calling of History' examines Sarkar's career - and poignant obsolescence - as a way in to larger questions about the discipline of history and its public life. Through close readings of more than twelve hundred letters to and from Sarkar along with other archival documents, Dipesh Chakrabarty demonstrates that historians in colonial India formulated the basic concepts and practices of the field via vigorous - and at times bitter and hurtful-debates in the public sphere. He furthermore shows that because of its non-technical nature, the discipline as a whole remains susceptible to pressure from both the public and the academy even today.0Methodological debates and the changing reputations of scholars like Sarkar, he argues, must therefore be understood within the specific contexts in which particular histories are written. Insightful and with far-reaching implications for all historians, The Calling of History offers a valuable look at the double life of history and how tensions between its public and private sides played out in a major scholar's career
Europa als Provinz : Perspektiven postkolonialer Geschichtsschreibung by Dipesh Chakrabarty( Book )

Historical teleologies in the modern world( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Historical Teleologies in the Modern World tracks the fragmentation and proliferation of teleological understandings of history--the notion that history had to be explained as a goal-directed process--in Europe and beyond throughout the 19th and into the 20th century. Historical teleologies have profoundly informed a variety of other disciplines, including modern philosophy, natural history, literature, philanthropism, revolutionary politics, European thought and practice in colonialism and empire, the conceptualization of universal humankind, and the understanding of modernity in general. By exploring the extension and plurality of historical teleology, the essays in this volume revise the history of historicity in the modern period. Historical Teleologies in the Modern World casts doubt on the idea that a single, if powerful, conception of time could function as the unifying principle of all modern historicity, instead pursuing an investigation of the plurality of modern historicities and its underlying structures. By bringing together Western and non-Western histories, this book provides the first extended treatment of the idea of historical teleology. It will be of great value to students and scholars of modern global and intellectual history"--Publisher's website

Public Life of History( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This special issue of 'Public Culture' explores the tension and the challenges raised by the interaction of history with the domains of public life, including politics, the law, and the media. It focuses specifically on situations where a social compact has been reshaped based on the revaluation of historical wounds such as those inflicted in South African apartheid and in the Holocaust. The politics of recognition has challenged historical research to serve public ends, invoking the past as the site of the original slight and calling for redress in the present. Gathering scholars involved in prominent debates regarding the shifting expectations of the rule of history, this special issue is a sustained engagement with historical experience, public discussion, and historical truth in a variety of global sites

Sport in South Asian society : past and present by Boria Majumdar( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A detailed study of sports' arrival, spread and advance in colonial and post-colonial South Asia. A selection of articles addresses critical issues of nationalism, communalism, commercialism and gender through the lens of sport. This book makes the point that the social histories of South Asian sport cannot be understood by simply looking at the history of the game in one province or region. Furthermore, it demonstrates that it would be wrong to understand sport in terms of the exigencies of the colonial state. Drawing inspiration from C.L.R. James' well-known epigram, 'What do
KlimaKulturen Soziale Wirklichkeiten im Klimawandel by Ulrich Battis( )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungViel zu lange glaubte man, für die Erforschung des Klimawandels seien ausschließlich Meteorologen, Meereskundler und Gletscherforscher zuständig. Doch die Klimaerwärmung konfrontiert Menschen, Kulturen und Gesellschaften mit neuen und in ihrer Tragweite noch kaum begriffenen Herausforderungen. Deren Bewältigung stellt nicht nur eine technologische, sondern auch eine kulturelle Aufgabe dar -sie betrifft den Lebensstil ebenso wie Fantasie und Erfindungsgabe. Die Kulturwissenschaften haben hier die wichtige Funktion, die Befunde der Klimaforschung in ihrer sozialen Dimension ei
