History and Political Economy Colloquium with Dr. Utathya Chattopadhyaya | “Intoxication and Political Economy”

April 7, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Flyer for "History and Political Economy Colloquium" on April 7 from 12-1:50PM in HSSB 4080

We are excited to announce the fourth session of the History Department’s colloquium on history and political economy. The colloquium offers a forum for open, substantive discussions on how to approach political economy from a historical perspective; how to grapple with and benefit from the epistemological diversity surrounding political economy; and how a historical take on political economy can help contextualize and address urgent contemporary issues– at UCSB, in Santa Barbara/Southern California, in the U.S., and around the world – ranging from rent, inflation, and student debt to deepening, racialized inequality. For that purpose, we will center our own research and put our work into conversation across geographical, chronological, and field boundaries. 

At our fourth meeting, we will discuss “Intoxication and Political Economy” with Professor Utathya Chattopadhyaya (flyer attached).

Please note that this session will take place in week 1 of the spring quarter.

In preparation for the meeting, please contact Manuel Covo to obtain a copy of the readings to be discussed. Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
