Speaker(s): Vikram Seth
Chair: Professor Amartya Sen

Recorded on 18 March 2010 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

The Colorni lectures are held regularly in memory of Eva Colorni, who taught economics at the former City of London Polytechnic - now incorporated into London Metropolitan University - until her early death in 1985. A collection of the earlier lectures is published by Oxford University Press, under the title Living As Equals. This year's lecture will be delivered by the Indian poet and novelist Vikram Seth.
