Subterranean Ghosts: India’s Vanishing Stepwells
March 20, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Journalist Victoria Lautman will introduce viewers to the stepwells of India in this live Zoom lecture. The subterranean structures were built for more than a millennium to harvest water, but as of the 1800s became obsolete. Lautman documented the stepwells for her book, “The Vanishing Stepwells of India,” and will discuss the history and current state of the structures in the talk.
