This month, a special issue of Interventions: International Journal of Postcolonial Studies themed on ‘Deep Historicities’ has been published featuring the work of multiple members of the Centre. The publication emerges from a symposium held at Harvard University in April 2019, co-convened by Laura Rademaker, Ben Silverstein (both Postdoctoral Fellows on the Laureate Program) and Daniel Lord Smail of the Harvard History Department.

The collection represents different ways of imagining and understanding deep pasts across culture and discipline, attending to the specificities of both Indigenous knowledges as well as knowledges produced by deep historians, archaeologists, and anthropologists. In the title article, Laura Rademaker and Ben Silverstein seek to understand the deep past, the knowledges of First Nations peoples and of the various academic disciplines that can seem incommensurable.
