Homi K Bhabha is the Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University. He is the author of numerous works exploring colonial and postcolonial theory, cultural change and power, and cosmopolitanism, among other themes. Some of his works include Nation and Narration and The Location of Culture, which was reprinted as a Routeledge 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

For this special Creative Conversations event, Bhabha will present a talk and be in conversation about the concept of “the unprepared” with University of Glasgow’s Dr Sourit Bhattacharya. 

Sourit Bhattacharya is a co-editor of Nabarun Bhattacharya (2020) and Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry. He is the author of Postcolonial Modernity and the Indian Novel (2020). 

This event will be held on Zoom and you will be sent a link to attend the meeting once you book on Eventbrite. 

Creative Conversations is programmed by the University of Glasgow Creative Writing Programme and funded by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
