ANANYA ROY POVERTY CAPITAL PDF

Roy does work in three areas: The analysis of urban poverty in the global South ; The investigation of new frontiers of capital accumulation, notably the conversion of economies of poverty into globally circulating capital; and The examination of new formations of global urbanism, notably bold urban planning experiments undertaken by nation-states in Asia. Roy engages with feminist and ethnographic methodologies and often draws upon post-colonial feminism for theoretical inspiration. In the field of urban studies , Roy is well known for advancing the theoretical concept of "urban informality" [1] and the call for "new geographies of theory" that are attentive to the urban condition of the global South. At Berkeley, Roy taught graduate and undergraduate students. In , she was awarded the Distinguished Teaching Award, the highest teaching honor UC Berkeley bestows on its faculty.

Skickas inom vardagar. Recensioner i media "Poverty Capital is a must read for those interested in issues of poverty and inequality around the world. In taking an unflinching look at "bottom billion capitalism," it shows how development actually works and how global markets are actually constructed.

Although concerned with practices of microfinance in the global South, the book provides an analysis that is strikingly relevant for discussions of subprime markets, the financial crisis, and social justice here in America. A pure joy to read! The author thinks like an academic and writes like a poet. It is an admirable overview of contemporary microfinance in all its proliferating diversity and considerable complexity. It is a well-conceived, timely, thorough study of a crucial issue; it is grounded by extensive fieldwork; and each chapter is full of nuanced observations on the histories and dynamics of microfinance institutions in Bangladesh, Afghanistan, the USA and elsewhere.

She is also the founding chair of a new undergraduate curriculum in Global Poverty and Practice. At Berkeley, Roy is the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award and Golden Apple Award for Outstanding Teaching, the highest teaching honors bestowed by the campus and its students.
