Pushpa Arabindoo on the coronavirus lockdown in Chennai

Indian Cities and the Pandemic

Dr Pushpa Arabindoo has published a commentary, 'Pandemic cities: Between mimicry and trickery', based on reflections from Chennai in the journal Cities and Society.

It responds to the current situation in which residential lockdown has become the universal order of the day. In the conclusion she wonders how discourses on global urbanism will develop when the novelty of the current crisis wears off, but offers no prizes for guessing Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year for 2020!
