2:00 PM Talk: Shakespeare and Religion The life of Shakespeare is a fine mystery and I tremble every day lest something should turn up," wrote Charles Dickens in 1847. How might we understand William Shakespeare as an author who lived and wrote in the wake of a religious Reformation in Western Europe, at a time when fundamental questions about doctrine, religious conformity, and biblical interpretation were intensively raised and debated? Come and join leading scholars of Shakespeare explore the mystery of his life and religious beliefs.

5:00 PM Lecture: The Spectre of Global China China has recently emerged as one of Africa's top business partners, aggressively pursuing its raw materials and establishing a mighty presence in the continent's booming construction market. Among major foreign investors in Africa, China has stirred the most fear, hope, and controversy.

Ching Kwan Lee, professor of sociology at the UC Los Angeles in her new book "The Specter of Global China," analyzes the peculiarity of outbound Chinese state capital by comparing it with global private capital in copper and construction in Zambia. Refuting the rhetorical narratives of "Chinese colonialism" and "south-south cooperation," Lee draws on ethnographic data collected over a six-year period to chronicle the multi-faceted struggles that confront and differentiate these two varieties of capital, and discuss their uneven potentials for post-colonial African development.

5:00 PM Lecture: Nations Against Empires: Nation-State Building in the Balkans The lecture will focus on major transformations in Southeastern Europe from the late eighteenth century to the Balkan Wars (1912-1913) and the First World War (1914-1918), in the context of global changes that led to the demise of the Austro-Hungarian, Russian, and German empires and reconfigured the map of Europe.

The Ottoman Empire, at its height under the reign of Süleyman the Magnificent (1520-1566), extended from the Danube to the Nile. The Balkans formed an important part of this empire for six hundred years, until the nineteenth century when the rise of Balkan nationalisms resulted in the collapse of the mighty empire and in the creation of new states based on the principle of national self-determination. The lecture will focus on major transformations in Southeastern Europe from the late eighteenth century to the Balkan Wars (1912-1913) and the First World War (1914-1918), in the context of global changes that led to the demise of the Austro-Hungarian, Russian, and German empires and reconfigured the map of Europe. - Refreshments will be provided.

About the speaker: Dr. Christina Koulouri is a Professor in Modern and Contemporary History at Panteion University of Political and Social Sciences (Athens, Greece) and the Director of the Research Centre for Modern History (KENI). From 2013-2017 she was the Dean of the School of Political Sciences, at Panteion University. She studied at the University of Athens (Department of History and Archaeology), the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales and Paris I - Panthéon - Sorbonne where she also received her PhD.
