Featuring Carl H. Nightingale, Associate Professor of Transnational Studies and American Studies, University of Buffalo. Professor Nightingale’s recent book, Segregation: A World History of Divided Cities, traces the spread of segregationist practices in ancient cities through the rise of racial segregation as a global phenomenon from 1700 to the present. It combines primary research on cities in Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas with literature on the history of global urban politics. Professor Nightingale’s lecture will focus on his new reflections on transnational urban history.
