"One Hundred Years, One Hundred Voices"
February 27, 2008
A talk by Neera Adarkar, architect and women's rights activist.
As part of "Displacement Week 2008", Neera Adarkar discusses the history of central Bombay's textile area — one of the most important, least known, stories of modern India. Covering a dense network of textile mills, public housing estates, markets and cultural centers, this area covers approximately one thousand acres in the heart of India's commercial and financial capital. In One Hundred Years, One Hundred Voices, Adarkar presents one hundred testimonies from residents of the former mill districts: a window into the history, culture and political economy of a former colonial port city now recasting itself as a global metropolis.
