Tentatively titled ""Unruly Citizens": an ethnography of driving in Hyderabad, India", my dissertation is a phenomenological exploration of driving in modern India. I use driving as a window to examine the relationship citizens have to regulatory authority, such as traffic policemen. I use a microsociological approach to understanding how practical knowledge and "expert systems" interact and produce understandings of risk, safety, and pleasure on the road.
