Nitin Bathla: "The Extended City in the Planetary Age"
This lecture attempts to reconsider cities and cityness, and retool urban comparison for the times of multiple intersectional crises and uncertainty that Dipesh Chakrabarty has described in his recent book on the Climate of History as the ‘Planetary Age’. It proposes to retool the comparative framework of ordinary cities as extended cities for analysing fragments of cities everywhere that are being shaped through the forces of speculative urbanism and extended urbanization in the Planetary Age. In doing so, the lecture attempts to make further contributions to the incipient reproachment between the fields of agrarian and urban studies through stretching the terrain of analysis of the agrarian, urban, and housing questions and southern practice.
