John W. Draper Program Speaker Series

“Thank You Suharto: How I Became an Academic”

Wednesday, Nov 20 at 8:45pm
14 University Place

(pizza and refreshments will be provided)

Prof. Taylor M. Easum

Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow of Draper Program

Taylor M. Easum is an historian of Asia, with a keen interest in Thailand and urban history. He recently completed his Ph.D. in History at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His research lies at the intersection of cities, power, and space in Asian history. In his research and writing, Dr. Easum explores the relationship between local history and broad historical queries, such as the nature of empire or the spread of nationalism. He is particularly interested, for example, in refocusing historical debate away from the Asian metropolis and toward the intermediate, secondary, and smaller cities of the region. His ongoing research into the urban historical traditions of mainland Southeast Asia also deals with issues of historical preservation, memory and identity, especially as manifested in urban space.

The Draper Student Organization is proud to announce the 2013-2014 ”John W. Draper Program Speaker Series”. This year’s series will feature a remarkable selection NYU professors who share their latest academic research as well as their experience in the academic world.

Reflecting the John W. Draper Program’s belief that the pressing issues of humanities and social sciences are most fruitfully explored through cross-disciplinary approaches, each year’s speaker series presents prominent professors from across the spectrum of departments at NYU’s Graduate School of Arts & Science.
