City and countryside: the infrastructure of water in colonial Bangalore

Dr Aditya Ramesh (University of Manchester) will be speaking on City and countryside: the infrastructure of water in colonial Bangalore. This open lecture is a part of Oslo Metropolitan University South Asia Seminar Series (Chapter 1: India).

The theme for Oslo Metropolitan University South Asia Seminar Series (Chapter 1: India) is Perceptions of Environment.

In the past few decades, several works on the environment have radically reshaped the ways in which we think of/and write about non-human or more-than-human worlds (Anna Tsing). The studies have brought a specific dimension of the environment to fore. First, it has taught us the entanglements of humans, their role in the changes and effects on the environment – namely, the era of Anthropocene. Second, it has dramatically shifted, if not changed, these anthropocentric perceptions of environment – allowing access to the multisensorial, multispecies world (Govindarajan). 

Oslo Metropolitan University South Asia Seminar therefore, is structured to host conversation by scholars whose works deal significantly with the environmental history, politics, law, governance and theory. The series specifically accommodates for changing nature of the landscape in the wake of Covid – foregrounding challenges to the study of the environment. It seeks to investigate new tools, methods, innovations, for instance, the implication on ethnographic research, as Pandian writes, “an environmental method, taking the uncertainty of the world as foundation for knowledge and ethics” (Pandian, 2020).

All invited.
