Book Discussion - The Moving City: Scenes from the Delhi Metro and the Social Life of Infrastructure

Friday, March 4, 2022 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM
Virtually on Zoom

For more information and to register: cssr.gmu.edu/events/12951

"The Moving City" is a rich and intimate account of urban transformation told through the story of Delhi's Metro, a massive infrastructure project that is reshaping the city's social and urban landscapes. Ethnographic vignettes introduce the feel and form of the Metro and let readers experience the city, scene by scene, stop by stop, as if they, too, have come along for the ride. Laying bare the radical possibilities and concretized inequalities of the Metro, and how people live with and through its built environment, this is a story of women and men on the move, the nature of Indian aspiration, and what it takes morally and materially to sustain urban life. Through exquisite prose, Rashmi Sadana transports the reader to a city shaped by both its Metro and those who depend on it, revealing a perspective on Delhi unlike any other.

The documentary follows the story of a father and son. When influential Chinese artist Ma Liang (Maleonn) realizes that his father Ma Ke, an accomplished Peking Opera director, is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, they begin to collaborate on Maleonn's most ambitious project to date.

"Papa's Time Machine" is a haunting, magical, autobiographical stage performance featuring life-size mechanical puppets. Through the creation of this play, the two men confront their complex history, changing relationship, and enduring bond.
