How is it that a postcolonial Indian economy, once regarded as doomed because of an exploding impoverished population, is now seen as the beacon of hope for the future?

In this talk, Kavita Philip (UC-Irvine)) explores the links between the ways in which new forms of property have been redefined around the threat of the pirate, even as political economy has been revivified by the spirit of jugaad, an improvisational, contingent ethic of practice that putatively confounds the assumptions of universal progress and romantic localism.

C21 is now accepting applications for its 2015-16 Provost Post-Doctoral Fellowship in interdisciplinary humanities.

Deadline to submit applications is March 2, 2015.

The Provost post-doctoral fellow will be part of a group of UWM and UW System fellows whose research interests relate to an annual theme. For 2015-16, our research theme is Indigeneities.

Applicants must have received their doctorates no earlier than July 1, 2010. The fellowship is designed to further broaden the academic networks of the group of faculty in residence at C21, and is thus unavailable to UW-Milwaukee and UW System faculty.
