Urbanizing Citizenship provokes a critical discussion on urbanism(s) in India using urban citizenship as a lens of interrogation. Bringing together an interdisciplinary and emerging group of scholars working on India, this book looks at six cities-Ahmedabad, peri-urban Bangalore, Calcutta, Delhi, Mumbai and Varanasi-and examines a range of processes: urban renewal, participatory slum resettlement, municipal reforms, city imagineering, urban environmentalism, squatting policies, urban protest and civil violence. Through ethnographies and histories of the urban, this book unsettles theories generated in the Euro-American context to show how urban citizenship might be differently practiced, understood and reconfigured within the Indian context.
