Devt@man seminar series: Slum Speculation and Ageing, Dr Vandana Desai (Royal Holloway, University of London).
Joint seminar with the Global Urbanism research group, chaired by Melanie Lombard.
Development@Manchester is the flagship seminar series bringing together scholars involved in cutting edge research on international development. It is organised by the Institute for Development Policy and Management for the wider scholarly community at the University of Manchester interested in development. Tanja Bastia and Piyawadee Rohitarachoon are convening the seminar for the 2014/2015 academic year.
The seminar series aims to facilitate dialogue and discussion, providing a space for invited leading development thinkers to share their latest research ideas with the University of Manchester’s members of staff and students in the School of Environment, Education and Development (SEED) and across different faculties. As such, it is interdisciplinary in nature, covering a broad range of topics, from environment and conservation, poverty and inequality, global development policies and institutions to social theories and historical approaches to the study of development.
