The Veranda: South Asia's Colonial and Post-Colonial Porch, 1870-1946October 1, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki Hall A201
Professor Marc Gilbert (History, HPU) will discuss the history and significance of the veranda, the most characteristic element of South Asian colonial and post-colonial architecture.
This illustrated talk considers the veranda's form and function as an example of colonial hybridity, and the use of this at once South Asian and colonial architectural space as divider and middle ground between ruler and subject during the colonial era and its persistence after South Asian independence.
Gilbert holds the NEH Endowed Chair in World History at HPU, and is the author of numerous scholarly books and articles, including, most recently "South Asia: A World History," published by Oxford University Press. He is currently writing a book about the South Asian origins of the First Indochina War.
