New Humanities Work in Global Justice Book Talks

Madhumita Lahiri

As the first of a new series of Zoom book talks on “New Work in Global Justice,” on March 15, 2023, Georgetown Humanities welcomed Madhumita Lahiri (English and Comparative Literature, U Michigan) who discussed her book Imperfect Solidarities: Tagore, Gandhi, Du Bois, and the Global Anglophone. The event was moderated by Prof. Nathan Hensley (to whom we owe the idea of the series). Prof. Cóilín Parsons offered a response. 

The series features new cutting-edge books that align with the values and goals of Georgetown Humanities–social justice, equity, and engagement with fundamental questions about the human and the non-human.
