"When the World Went South: Southeast Asia and the Making of the Global South"
Mark Bradley, Bernadotte E. Schmitt Distinguished Service Professor of History, University of Chicago
In this talk Bradley explores the imaginary we call the Global South, asking how it is both distinct from but also embedded in legacies of empire and notions of the Third World and how it has transcended its status as merely a descriptor to become a central if diffuse global political project in the twenty-first century. It will in part concentrate on the politics of cultural production in the making of the Global South, exploring the intervention of the Saigon based artist collective The Propeller Group around questions of world heritage.
