Event Description

Since the 17th Century, land has been “made” from its edges inward. Two scholars present research drawn from the long history of land in Mumbai, India, and in Western Kenya, showing how wealth is made from (and on) the edges of landed territories. Countering classical economics’ characterization that land’s value comes only from investing in the earth’s agricultural productivity, both speakers examine the long-term effects of alternate liquidities onto land’s shape and settlement.
