Webinar: Discussing Development

Date and Time: Sept 28, 2022 | 3:00pm-4:30pm HST

Register via Zoom webinar [new window]

In this segment of the Luce Southeast Asia in Transition Webinar Series, we will explore the story of Development from varied perspectives, putting local interactions with the development paradigm and the more-than-human world into a broad conversation. Picking up where the last series left off, exploring through film the Mekong River as a living entity, we have invited speakers who talk about, engage with, and experience Development through relationships with the dead, with invisible entities in the land, and with the living world of fish, frogs, rice, and trees. We will hear about development from people who share different perspectives upon and experiences with these matters. Our speakers include academic, practitioner, and local voices, and the conversations will reveal what Development looks like from a mix of viewpoints and social positions.

We will begin the series with a session on the many discourses of development
