Money in India
Join us for a special event as renowned academic and Vice Chancellor of Durham University, Professor Stuart Corbridge examines the role of money in contemporary India. Co-author of Seeing the State: Governance and Governmentality in India and India Today: Economy, Politics and Society, Professor Corbridge is one of the world's leading experts on contemporary India. From the role of gold and silver at the start of the 20th century to the demonetisation of large currencies in 2016, Prof Corbridge will consider why money has featured consistently as a political keyword in India and how India has been written insistently into the history of money.
Stuart Corbridge has been Vice Chancellor and Warden of Durham University since September 2015. Before that he was the first Provost of LSE. Corbridge has worked on development theory, the geopolitics of money and issues relating to governance and governmentality in contemporary India. Most of his academic career was spent at Cambridge and LSE (25 years), but he has also worked in the United States. Corbridge carried out fieldwork in eastern India on a regular basis from 1979 to 2003. He is the author, with Glyn Williams, Manoj Srivastava and Rene Veron, of Seeing the State: Governance and Governmentality in India (CUP 2005) and, with Craig Jeffrey and John Harriss, India Today: Economy, Politics and Society (Polity 2013).
