Raymond F. West Memorial Lecture

Amitav Ghosh: "China and the Making of Modern India: A Story of Fantasy, Abuse, and Recovered Memory" 
Monday December 03, 2012 | 06:00 -07:30 PM | Cemex Auditorium, Zambrano Hall- 641 Knight Way, Stanford CA

The opium trade had momentous consequences for Chinese history in the 18th and 19th centuries. Amitav Ghosh will speak about the lesser-known impact that this trade had on arts, crafts, tastes and styles in India, the world's leading opium-producing country under the British Raj.

Please note the talk is free and open to the public.

We hope you and your students will be able to join us!

All best,
