August 15 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

SSSWARM_ Cycling Caste and Cargo in Urban India

Join Malini Sur from Western Sydney University as she delves into the intricate interplay between cargo-cycling, caste dynamics, and urban development in Kolkata, India.

Her presentation examines how historical events like the partition of India and environmental changes have reshaped economic and social landscapes, influencing the movements of vendor-cyclists and the goods they transport. This talk, part of the Sydney Staff & Student Workshops on Anthropology, Research, and Methods (SSSWARM), offers insights into the resilience of community practices amidst urban transformation and globalization pressures.

Venue: A02 Social Sciences Building, Room 441, The University of Sydney
