Reading the Global

We tend to think and speak of globalization as a natural process: an inevitable and given part of human evolution. Sanjay Krishnan joins us this week to provide a critical genealogy and take of that outlook. He locates the discourse in the emergence of empire and how that discourse was internalised and adopted in various ways in our context.
