Rajyashri Goody’s art practice is informed by her academic background in Sociology and Visual Anthropology and her Ambedkarite Dalit roots. She is interested in creating space and time for thinking through everyday instances of caste-based violence and Dalit resistance, and how elements like food, nature, language and literacy are actively used as tools to enforce caste rules for generations 

 

Sucharita Kanjilal is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Bard College (New York, US). Sucharita’s research examines the place of gender, caste and religious nationalism in the growth of digital capitalism, combining anthropological and feminist perspectives on economic theory, media, and food. 

 

Sri Vamsi Matta, or simply Vamsi, is a Bangalore-based Theatre and Visual artist. His practice is influenced by his Dalit identity, experience, and location. The identity, and histories of his community and family, inform the questions, topics, and mediums that Vamsi engages with through his work.
