Cycling the City: Contemporary Histories and Possibilities

What led to the rise and fall of cycling culture in Kathmandu? What do the rise and fall reveal about the prevalent gender and class divides in the city? Why did some cities around the world embrace cycling while others, such as Kathmandu, chose not to? What are the conditions – cultural, political, economic – of possibility for adopting cycling as a primary mode of transportation? The upcoming and final discussion seminar addresses these questions, anchored by Prashanta Khanal’s research for Kathmandu Valley Urban History Project, 

The discussion seminar will be a full day session, moderated by Sabin Ninglekhu. Presentations and discussions will take place in a mix of Nepali and English. Participants are requested to stay for the entire session. Participation is free however limited to 30 and by registration only on a first come first serve basis. Lunch will be provided.
