Bombay/Mumbai has been represented in diverse ways in the media – a discursive field as complex and contested as the city itself. DiverCity brings together work done at the School of Media and Cultural Studies, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, where students and faculty engage with diverse communities and spaces within Mumbai, seeking to celebrate the unrecognised subaltern energies that have made the city.
