Open lecture: From Piraeus to Kolkata: Logistics along the New Silk Road
October 10, 2019 - 10:00-11:30
Forum for Asian Studies at Stockholm University invites to an open lecture with prof. Brett Neilson on Chinas Belt and Road Initiative. The talk considers questions of empirical research and method in two sites: the Greek port of Piraeus, often positioned as a “dragon’s head” of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, and Kolkata, an unavoidable chokepoint in this same project. Issues for interrogation include the conceptualization of logistical power, the relation of logistical techniques and technologies to geopolitics, and the binds of civilizational perspectives in understanding the making of logistical worlds.
