Join Dr. Thushara Hewage, Assistant Professor of Anthropology as the University of Ottawa, today April 4 at 12:15 in Barnes Science Center room 407 for his talk “Rethinking The Problem of Sinhala Nationalism: Majority, Minority and Democracy in the Postcolony”. This event is sponsored by the Program in Asian Studies and the Department of Anthropology.

“Sri Lanka’s modern history has been punctuated by periodic Sinhalese majority pogroms against the island’s minority communities. This violence and the obstacle of Sinhalese nationalism poses to the resolution of Sri Lanka’s ‘national question’ of minority political rights is conventionally theorized in terms of the tenacious cultural hold of ethnic ideology over Sinhalese Buddhist selves. Questioning the adequacy of such models, my talk problematizes Sinhalese majoritarianism from a different angle, focusing on the predominantly Sinhalese Marxist political party, the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (People’s Liberation Front), examining the articulation of a Sinhalese constituency’s claim on the Sri Lankan state, and exploring its historical contingency. I suggest that this claim is less profitably analyzed in ethnic ideological terms. Rather, it indexes a problem of the secular production of majorities and minorities, integral to the operation of democracy in many postcolonial societies.

Block 8, 2020: The Industrial Revolution in Britain , Ec 385, Vibha Kapuria-Foreman & Esther Redmount – taught mainly in London.
Economics as it is practiced today is born out of the Industrial Revolution. We will examine how the thinkers and innovators of the period from the late 18th through the mid-19th century conceptualized what was happening around them and explore the legacies they left behind in the cities and countryside of England. These innovations – intellectual and material – changed forever how we think about the individual, the choices we make, the roles of government and business in society and the very concept of well-being itself.

Students will spend weeks 2-4 in England, based mainly in London. There will be field trips to places of importance to the course both within the city and around London.
We will also build in “free” time for students to do some exploring on their own. The program fee will be $3500 (est). Airfare not included.

Enrollment is limited and by the consent of instructors only. For students to apply for “The Industrial Revolution in Britain, Ec385” a block 8 course, please email Vibha Kapuria-Foreman or Esther Redmount for more information.
