Llerena Guiu SearleKhoon Diy Baarav (Blood Leaves Its Trail) with film maker Iffat Fatima

On Wednesday, September 13, the South Asia Center is excited to host Llerena Guiu Searle to discuss Landscapes of Accumulation: Real Estate and the Neoliberal Imagination in Contemporary India. 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. The lecture will take place in 341 Eggers Hall at 12:30PM.
