Prof. Pratik Chakrabarti will explore how the complex world of nature came to define the intellectual pursuits of British natural history.

From the seventeenth century, Europeans engaged with a complex world of nature in the colonies in Asia, Africa and America in their pursuit of plants, minerals and human labour.

That particular history of nature is often lost in the conventional narratives of natural history, which focuses on the emergence of the empirical vision of nature based on experimental, observational, and empirical methods.

Drawing from British imperial history in South Asia and the Caribbean, this talk explores the alternative makings of natural history.
