CSSR Urban Research Hub presents a Book Talk: Mumbai Taximen

CSSR Urban Research Hub Presents a Book Talk with Tarini Bedi, PhD

Mumbai Taximen: Autobiographies and Automobiles in India

Thursday, October 20, 2022 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM EDT
Via Zoom, Register at https://gmu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcuceyvqDkuG9C6HyWXJeul2JGtJpwWnoLx

Join the CSSR Urban Research Hub for a book talk with Tarini Bedi as she discusses her book, Mumbai Taximen. In this first book-length study of Mumbai’s taxi industry and of the livelihoods that surround it, Tarini Bedi draws from the lives and voices of chillia taxi drivers who have sustained a hereditary trade for more than a century. While most understandings of automobility remain tied to Western assumptions, patterns of driving, (sub)urbanization, and engagements with the road, realities in the Global South differ. Mumbai Taximen provides a correction to this imbalance from Mumbai through a timely exploration of South Asian social, material, political, labor, and technological histories and practices of motoring and automobility.

Corporate Accountability for Major International Crimes: A Fragmented Cause?

Conference

May 25, 2023, 8:00 AM to May 26, 2023, 6:00 PM EDT
SNSPA Bucharest

This conference seeks to move forward the academic debates on corporate accountability by providing a platform for sociological analysis of the variety of actors and their fragmented / competing ideas on how to deal with, punish, and prevent the involvement of multinational corporations in mass crimes. We argue that in order to understand what happens in the pursuit of corporate accountability, it is necessary to profile the agents that shape this field and to connect their visions of corporate liability to their professional and regional backgrounds, as well as their political goals.
