Llerena Guiu Searle - Landscapes of accumulation: Real estate and the neoliberal imagination in contemporary India

When: Wednesday, September 13, 2017 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Where: 341 Eggers Hall

Description:

South Asia Center presents: Llerena Guiu Searle - Landscapes of accumulation: Real estate and the neoliberal imagination in contemporary India

Llerena Guiu Searle, Department of Anthropology, University of Rochester

In this talk, Searle will explain the violent, sudden, and spectacular growth of India’s cities by focusing on the people who have moved capital into real estate and the stories of growth that they have used to fuel speculation. She will look beyond the facades of India’s glitzy buildings to provide an ethnographic account of the international networks of speculative finance and the events of communication through which buildings, cities, and real estate markets are produced.

Open to the public. For more information, please contact Juanita Horan at 315.443.4927.

Sponsored by the South Asia Center at the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs
