What are the historical roots of the economic and ecological crises associated with neoliberal capitalism in contemporary India?  How might we imagine alternative visions of development, which might work to ameliorate problems of jobless growth, agricultural decline, and ecological destruction?  This panel discussion will address these questions through explorations of economic and ecological transformations in nineteenth-century India (Prasannan Parthasarathi) and contemporary approaches to sustainable development drawing on immanent knowledge and collectivities (Amit Basole).  The presentations will offer reflections on the possible futures of capitalism, development, and ecology in India.

Co-sponsored with the Department of South Asian Studies and the Harvard US-India Initiative (HUII)
