Homi Bhabha met with the Undergraduate Committee the morning after his Global Thought Lecture to delve more deeply into globalization and post-colonial identity. Participants used the work of W.E.B. Du Bois, Toni Morrison and Walter Benjamin to discuss notions of agency, sovereignty and representation in an interconnected world, as well as the practical applications of Bhabha’s theories.
