Professor Dilip Menon from the Centre for Indian Studies will deliver this talk.

This talk addresses the question of what it means to think fluvially, even as we are faced with the prospect of not fire, but water, the next time. How does water affect thinking when one lives by the sea? Or does it? Or is it taken for granted, as in Borges's remark that there are no camels in the Koran? Professor Dilip Menon from the Centre for Indian Studies in Africa will discuss the above and his current project which engages with the question of water, oceans and floods as central to the imagination of history and region.
