Archaeology Seminar Series 2020 : What we allow to dis-integrate: Ruins of development in South Asia Other events...
Ruins are everywhere. In South Asia, socio-economic development has led to the rapid transformation of the environmental, social and economic landscape. Led by a diverse range of actors, these transformations have informed the creation of new forms of ruins and ruination, the disintegration of recognisable forms whether they be material, ideational or institutional. Objects and institutions generate social effect in their preservation as well as their destruction and disposal. Thus, what we allow to disintegrate, to fall into ruin, is a powerful an assessment of our collective lives and histories as those we preserve and allow to flourish. Ruins of development call for a wider conceptualisation that locates their materiality within wider social, political and economic contexts. Focusing on hydropower development, ruins and life amidst these ruins in the eastern Himalaya, the talk will discuss how institutions, politics and people co-produce and even accelerate the production of new ruins and ruinations.
