CSA Fall Virtual Lecture Series: Ramya Ramanath (Associate Professor, School of Public Service, DePaul University)

A Place to Call Home

Event Details

Thursday, November 19, 2020
12-1 p.m.
The contents of the built environment that silhouette an urban terrain may be nowhere more in flux than in Mumbai, India. In her book, A Place to Call Home: Women as Agents of Change in Mumbai, Ramya Ramanath foregrounds experiences of a diverse group of 120 women recently displaced from the slums of Mumbai and resettled in high-rise public housing to show how a history of tumultuous urban planning decisions can help and hinder an under-heeded population of those who call the city home.
