THE SECRET LIFE OF CITIES
A CONVERSATION WITH SUKETU MEHTA
Thursday, February 11
University of Virginia, Nau Hall 101
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A HUMAN BEING
IN OUR MODERN DAY CITIES?
Suketu Mehta, NYU Associate Professor of Journalism and award-winning author of Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found, will explore this question in his lecture titled "The Secret Life of Cities."
Mehta's extensive knowledge of cities and the people who live within them will strike a chord with anyone interested in urban life. The lecture and Q&A session will focus on the interwoven themes of migration, alienation, and community building on a global-urban scale.
The event is sponsored by the Thriving Cities Project, an initiative of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia.
