Inaugural Lecture

Fast Urbanism: Between speed, time and urban futures

Speed is fundamental to producing the modern city. Drawing upon recent research, the inaugural Professorial lecture examined what fast urbanism looks like from the margins of the Indian city. What happens when contrary to the promise of a fast and seamless urban life that delivers the gift of time, the urban poor are confronted with new struggles with mobility, new exclusions from digital and physical infrastructures, reorganisation of domestic life, as well as the dangers of sexual harassment and assault both online and offline.
