The Thursday Series
“Bombay: The Imagination of the Modern City”
The city is dead. Urban theorists tell us that the city no longer exists as a distinct, bounded entity. Urban sprawl and globalization have turned cities into barely legible nodes in vast systems of communication, and transnational flows of people, commodities, images, and ideas. The lecture examines this discourse through the historical changes in Bombay/Mumbai, the career of the modern “city on the sea.”
