Jorge Canizares-Esguerra, associate professor of history at SUNY-Buffalo, will present “The Devil in Nature: Chivalry, Colonization and New World Landscapes 1500-1700” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, in Room 100 of the art building.

Canizares-Esguerra is a 2004-2005 Harrington Faculty Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin, following an Andrew Mellon Research Fellowship last year. His research interests include colonialism and knowledge, landscape narratives, and chivalry and colonial territorial possessions.

He is author of How to Write the History of the New World, which was awarded two prizes from the American Historical Association and was cited among the Best Books of the Year (2001) by The Economist, The Times Literary Supplement and London's The Independent.

His talk is part of the Center for American and World Cultures' UniDiversity program.
