This event is one in a programme of online events by Monsoon Assemblages, a European Research Council funded project, to coincide with the launch of the virtual exhibition, Monsoonal Multiplicities.
The exhibition presents the project’s five-year research engagement with the monsoon in Bangladesh, India, London and Myanmar.
Using methods and techniques drawn from anthropology, history, the spatial design disciplines, the natural sciences, critical cultural theory, ecofeminism and more, the project offers methods and approaches for investigating weather, climate and more-than-human becomings in urban monsoonal worlds. The exhibition offers visitors a virtual experience of this work, inviting them to follow the stories of entangled beings, energies, infrastructures, life-worlds, matters, technologies and knowledge practices and their encounters with colonial and neocolonial agendas.
About this event
Tour by: Leila Redpath
In this one-hour virtual tour, Leila Redpath will give participants a flavour of how the East India Company grew from a modest fleet of spice traders in 1600 to become the most powerful multinational corporation the world has ever known. But what ever happened to it? Why is it so hidden? And what is its legacy on the ground today? The tour will convey both the ingenuity and ruthlessness of the EIC and the ways it shapes our world today.
