Michael Goldman (Sociology, College of Liberal Arts): “Inside the ‘Bangalore Model’ of World-City Making: Excitement and Dispossession in Asia‘s Newest World Cities”
Goldman completed an article and a book chapter, wrote a large ACLS grant proposal, and presented his work in several venues. He learned much from discussing alternative analytic frames on his topic from colleagues in other disciplines—in particular from architecture, dance/performance, and history—which helped him orient his work in new ways. He considers that the IAS offers a unique place for interdisciplinary conversations to happen and to develop.
