CSDE, Invites Abstracts for the Young Scholars Seminar 2015
The Centre for the Study of Discrimination and Exclusion is organising a Young Scholars Seminar on 5-6 October, 2015.
Notwithstanding the academic rigour with which the caste question has been examined by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, economists as well as political scientists, caste still appears to be a perplexing lived reality. Rather than a fixed, essentialised or exclusive category, caste is contextual, intersects with various other identity markers and manifests itself in various local ways. One of the most intriguing features of caste is its ability to persist and adapt itself to the changing modern situations. The Young Scholars Seminar is aimed at encouraging M.Phil, PhD and post-doctoral scholars, working on various new dimensions of caste, to present their work, engage in constructive discussion and receive feedback. The seminar is intended to highlight the complexities that underlie caste practices as well as its variegated forms in past and present. Young scholars are invited to submit a 300 word abstract on any one of the following broad themes; along with one page C.V.
Note: Paper on other creative themes related to caste are welcome too.
Deadline for abstracts: 14th September, 2015
All the correspondence should be address to firstname.lastname@example.org
