Monday, December 4, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Wolff Conference Room, Albert and Vera List Academic Center, 1103 6 East 16th Street, New York, NY 10003, Room D1103

The Department of Sociology's last speaker of the semester will be Nick Wilson (Stony Brook) with his lecture "The Rise and Fall of Robert Clive: A Relational Theory of Empire and Modern Corruption."

Nicholas Hoover Wilson is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Stony Brook University, with affiliate appointments in the Departments of History and Asian and Asian American studies. His work focuses on corruption, imperialism, and state formation, and his talk will use the case of the English East India Company in the late 18th century to demonstrate how the politics of imperial administration related to the emergence of "modern" understandings of corruption."

Presented by The New School for Social Research, Department of Sociology.
