Abstract:

In February 2013 I made a three-week field trip to Coastal Andhra Pradesh, the region where I had carried out my original doctoral research in the early 1980s. Visiting towns and villages in the region that I knew from thirty years ago, I found many fascinating developments – both expected and surprising. In the talk I will present some very initial observations and ideas that emerged from this fieldwork, and sketch out my tentative research agenda for the next two years under the Provincial Globalisation programme.
