Professor Stewart to be Leverhulme Professor in the UK

In 2011 Gordon Stewart will take up a Leverhulme Visiting Professorship in the United Kingdom. He will deliver five public lectures at the Universities of Dundee and Edinburgh (“A Tale of Two Cities: Dundee and Calcutta in the Global Economy”; “Jute in the World: the Worlds of Jute”; “The Same but Different: Women Workers in Dundee and Calcutta”; “The Scottish Enlightenment Meets the Tibetan Enlightenment”; “Love, Sex and Marriage in British India.”). He will also lead workshops in World History with faculty and graduate students as part of the development of a Centre for Global History. The Leverhulme Trust, based in London, provides “a limited number of Visiting Professorships each year to enable outstandingly distinguished academics based in overseas universities to spend some time at UK universities.”
