Event Description
What is the city but the people?” asks Shakespeare in Coriolanus. In this series of lectures, writer Suketu Mehta looks at the urban human being, exploring themes of migration, loneliness, and community in the world’s cities. Mehta is author of Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found (2004), which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist. He has won the Whiting Writers Award and an O. Henry Prize for his essays and fiction, which have appeared in the New Yorker, Granta, Harper’s, Time, and Newsweek, and featured on NPR’s “Fresh Air” and “All Things Considered.” Mehta is currently working on a book about immigrants in contemporary New York, for which he received a Guggenheim Fellowship.
Cosponsored by the South Asia Institute at Harvard University.
