September 23, 2010

The University of King's College is proud to present a lecture by
Jack Crowley entitled "Picturing Race in Early Modern Europe," on
Thursday September 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the KTS Lecture Hall,
New Academic Building, 2nd floor, King's Campus, 6350 Coburg Road.

Dr. Crowley is Professor Emeritus at Dalhousie University and
adjunct professor in the Early Modern Studies Programme at King's, where he teaches a class on European representations of non-European worlds. His research interests include comparative
European colonization and early modern Anglo-American society
and culture. His latest book, Imperial Landscapes: Britain's Global
Visual Culture, 1745 - 1820 will be published by Yale University
Press in 2011.

The lecture is free and open to the public, with a reception to follow. It is presented by the King's Contemporary Studies Programme, the Early Modern Studies Programme, and the History of Science and Technology Programme.

The Lecture Series "Conceptions of Race in Philosophy, Literature
and Art" examines how the notion of race and the phenomenon of
racism have developed in the Western tradition. The speakers will
examine the works of prominent philosophers, writers and artists,
illuminating the origins of contemporary ways of thinking about
race. Public lectures will continue throughout the academic year until March 22 and will feature nationally and internationally renowned speakers and artists.
