Play • 28 min
In December 2020, Prathama Banerjee held the second annual Berlin Southern Theory Lecture, a lecture series that aims to decenter dominant Euro-American traditions and diversify theoretical debates in the social sciences and the humanities. She is a professor of history at The Center for the Study of Developing Societies in New Delhi, India, and she has recently published the book Elementary Aspects of the Political: histories from the global south. In addition to being a historian of colonial and post-colonial India, she’s also a political theorist. In this podcast, she tells us about how she ended up investigating the meaning of concepts like ‘history’, ‘time’ and ‘the political’ in different contexts.
