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.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
