Asia brown bag lecture: Michael Alexander Ulfstjerne

Date: 
Tuesday, April 21, 2015 - 12:00 to 13:00
NIAS and ADI invite you to a brown bag lecture by Michael Alexander Ulfstjerne from the Dept. of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies. 
 
Un-real Estate: The Social Life of Temporary Wealth in China.
Building on work from his doctoral dissertation Michael Ulfstjerne's talk traces a local economic boom in Inner Mongolia, China into its subsequent bust. It gives an account of how state as well as non-state actors appropriate state development schemes and the unintended effects resulting from the colluding forces of plan and profit. Through the attitudes, perceptions, and forms of sociality that constituted an actual economic bubble (and its subsequent collapse) the dissertation provides ethnographic detail relevant for understanding contemporary China and the social effects of state-led urbanization.
 
Bio
Michael Alexander Ulfstjerne is a PhD fellow at the Dept. of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies. His dissertation entitled Un-real Estate: The Social Life of Temporary Wealth in China was published in January 2015.
 
Time: 21 April 2015, 12:00-13:00
Place: NIAS, CSS, room 18.1.08
 
Feel free to bring your own lunch. There will be coffee/tea.
