Join the Harvard South Asia Institute as we celebrate the end of the year with the opening of the Kumbh Mela: Mapping the Ephemeral Megacity exhibit in CGIS.

Over fifty Harvard professors, students, administrative staff, and medical practitioners made the pilgrimage to Allahabad, India, to the Kumbh Mela site in 2013, to analyze issues that emerge in any large-scale human gathering. The Kumbh Mela: Mapping the Ephemeral Megacity book and exhibition consolidate research findings and serve as an example of interdisciplinary research conducted at Harvard.
