Belatedness as Possibility Subaltern histories, once again

  • Dipesh Chakrabarty University of Chicago


Even though I will be discussing historiography, not art, in the main body of this essay, I have to acknowledge that the essay owes its title to the accident of an invitation I received recently from the noted historian of visual culture in South Asia, Professor Christopher Pinney, to speak at a conference on art history he had organized at the Northwestern University in Chicago in May 2008. The topic of belatedness was being discussed at the conference, and the invitation made me remember that my most recent encounter with the theme of belatedness was at an exhibition of Indian art held in Chicago in 2007.
