Podcast: CSMCH Showcase 4 with Julie Gibbings

Our fourth CSMCH Showcase podcast is now online!

My guest was Julie Gibbings, our recently appointed lecturer in the history of the indigenous Americas. Amongst many things, we talked about how Julie got interested in Guatemala, what it means to work on a post-conflict society, and how indigenous knowledge can reshape our understanding of time and space. We also explored some of the main themes of her new book, entitled Our Time is Now: Race and Modernity in Postcolonial Guatemala (Cambridge University Press, 2020)
