Caste and Religion 


April 19, 2024  

10-11:30am PST 


Location: Zoom 



Sunder John Boopalan is Associate Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies at Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) in Winnipeg, Canada. His book, ‘Memory, Grief, and Agency,’ compares Indian and North American contexts of casteism and racism. 


Pinky Hota is an Associate Professor of Anthropology and South Asian Studies, Smith College (Northampton, MA). Her book The Violence of Recognition: Adivasi Indigeneity and Anti-Dalitness in India (2023, University of Pennsylvania Press) shows how adivasi indigeneity operates as a fulcrum of caste capitalism that facilitates the legal, political and ultimately, economic exclusion, of Dalits in India. 


Shaista Aziz Patel works as an Assistant Professor of Critical Muslim Studies in the Department of Ethnic Studies at UCSD. Her scholarly and all other political investments are in several questions that draw upon theories in Indigenous (to North America and South Asia), Black, Dalit, anti-caste, Muslim, and transnational feminist studies. 



The panel is part of the Caste and Corporeality conference.  


Co-sponsored by UCHRI, CIS, Department of Dance, and Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
