Professor to discuss partition in India and Thailand Dec. 2 at BYU

Shane Strate, visiting professor of history at Brigham Young University, will present “The Trauma of Lost Territory: Discourses of Partition in India and Thailand” at a David M. Kennedy Center lecture Wednesday, Dec. 2, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Strate joined the BYU faculty this fall as part of the visiting faculty program. His research interests include modern imperialism, nationalism, identity and authoritarianism. In 2006, he spent a year in Thailand for research as a Fulbright Hays Fellowship Dissertation Research Abroad recipient.

His article, “An Uncivil State of Affairs: Fascism and Anti-Catholicism in Thailand, 1940-1944,” was recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Southeast Asian Studies.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
