Caste and Corporeality Conference


Dates: April 12-May 24, 2024


This conference on caste and corporeality brings together studies of caste, which have historically been the remit of the social sciences, with discourses of the body, which are rooted in the arts and humanities, to think about the body as a site of caste violence and caste reproduction as well as a site of refuge and healing from caste oppression. The conference will feature panels, workshops, and presentations by anti-caste scholars, artists, and activists.
