    150th Anniversary Scholar Series:
    What is at Stake in the Study of Race in the Early Modern Period?

    Ania Loomba, PhD
    Ian Cornelius, PhD

    This talk explores in what ways we can advance the conversation about race in the early modern period at this moment both in the United States and the world at large. It will argue that the range of ideologies and practices about racial difference in the early modern world alert us against oversimplifying our understanding of racial ideologies and their complicated global histories.

    Dr. Loomba is the Catherine Bryson Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania and an internationally renowned scholar of early modern literature, histories of race and colonialism, postcolonial studies, feminist theory, and contemporary Indian literature and culture. Her Colonialism/Postcolonialism has been praised as *crystal-clear* and *cogently argued* and translated into Italian, Turkish, Japanese, Swedish and Indonesian. Her most recent books include Revolutionary Desires: women, communism, and feminism in India (2018) and two edited collections: Rethinking Feminism in Early Modern Studies: Gender, Race and Sexuality (2016), and A Cultural History of Western Empires in the Renaissance (2018).
