Join Homi K. Bhabha for a discussion ‘On Being Unprepared (For Our Own Times)'

Moderated by Professor Wes Williams, TORCH Knowledge Exchange Champion

Biography: Homi K. Bhabha is the Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University.

He is one of the most important figures in contemporary post-colonial studies. Bhabha is the author of numerous works exploring colonial and postcolonial theory, cultural change and power, and cosmopolitanism, among other themes. In 2012, he received the Padma Bhushan award in the field of literature and education from the Indian government.

Some of his works include Nation and Narration and The Location of Culture, which was reprinted as a Routledge Classic in 2004 and has been translated into Korean, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Serbian, German and Portuguese. A selection of his work was recently published in a Japanese volume. Harvard University Press will publish his forthcoming book A Global Measure, and Columbia University Press will publish his next book The Right to Narrate.
