of Anthropology, University of Rochester
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.
