In Mumbai, the black and yellow taxi is a ubiquitous symbol of the city, its hustle, its grind, and its grit. 

Focusing on the hereditary community of chillia taxi drivers, who have sustained the industry for over a century, Tarini Bedi (University of Illinois Chicago) explores how lives, livelihoods, mobility, and modernity are bound together in tangled webs of economics, politics, kinship, care.  

How have taxi drivers sewn the webs that bind them to the city? And what are the strings that stitch them together today? Join us to learn more.    

Deepa Das Acevedo (University of Alabama Law School) and Biju Mathew  (Rider University) will be joining the author for this discussion. Elizabeth Lhost will moderate.
