Confronting Caste

A Seminar and Podcast Series from the King’s India Institute

Recent events in South Asia and across the globe have, once again, brought questions of caste to the forefront of public discourse. Confronting Caste is a series of conversations hosted by the King’s India Institute at King’s College London, to address these questions. The series will expand the scope of academic engagement with caste as a system of social power, with an aim to dissect and dismantle its modes of operation within coloniality-modernity.

During the first semester of 2020-21, Confronting Caste will be hosting three online panel events, as well as releasing three independent podcast episodes, and foster further conversations on social media. 

Dr. Srilata Sircar is the convener and Vignesh Rajahmani is the coordinator of the series.

To stay up to date on the series and podcasts you can register for the King’s India Institute Newsletter.
