Beastly Identification: Separating out Innocent from Murderous Big Cats in South Asia

March 14, 2018 - 10:00-12:00

The Centre of Global South Asian Studies is pleased to invite you to a public talk by Dr Nayanika Mathur, University of Oxford.

This paper asks how the act of hunting down a specified man-eater is dispensed with in a landscape in which several big cats co-exist, most of which are not man-eaters? How is certain knowledge of the guilt of a big cat arrived at anterior to its killing? This talk constitutes a study of the various methods through which hunters, bureaucrats, locals, scientists, conservationists, and other actors identify a specific, individual man-eater.

Nayanika Mathur is Associate Professor in the Anthropology of South Asia and Fellow of Wolfson College at the University of Oxford.
