Friday, March 10th, 2017
|Friday, March 10, 2017||2:00PM - 4:00PM||208N, North House, 1 Devonshire Place|
The talk will cover the subject of kampung, its recent fate and fortune, and whether its change is desirable? And how might the current change of kampung be understood in the context of capitalist modernization, urban governance, and politics of the city. The materials for the talk will be drawn from an on-going collaborative research with a university and notes taken from recent visits to Jakarta.
