Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


"The Spice Trade as Asian History and as Global History"

This is part of the Northeastern University Department of History's Global History Seminar Series.

Eric Tagliacozzo, Associate Professor of History, Cornell University, will give a lecture titled "The Spice Trade as Asian History and as Global History."

Since 2008, the Northeastern University History Department has been hosting the Global History Seminar Series. The Seminar invites prominent scholars from around the world whose research employs cutting edge methods and focuses on issues of global reach. These scholars discuss their work with faculty and students. Highlights from past years include such topics as genealogies of civil war (David Armitage), world empires in comparison (Jane Burbank and Fred Cooper), the African-American civil rights struggle in Europe (Martin Klimke), and eroticism and colonial power (Philippa Levine). A list of past speakers and topics is available on our website by academic calendar year. This year, Heather Streets-Salter, our Director of World History Program, is coordinating the series. Leading scholars will speak to themes ranging from global trade and networks of empire to emerging trends in migration studies and the new political landscape after the Arab Spring.
