This event was held on February 24, 2021 by the York University Graduate History Student Association (GHSA) with featured guest speaker Professor James Scott, from Yale University.
James Scott is in the early stages of mapping out a book on “Rivers” and what Homo sapiens has done to them, with a particular focus on the Irrawaddy in Burma/Myanmar. In this public lecture, Dr. Scott asks: Is it possible to write a book about rivers narrated in the first person… of the river itself? If it is possible, how might it be done? What models/forms/techniques exist for pulling it off?
