Respect your neighbor as yourself?: Caste in Kerala
March 20, 2019 - 14:15-16:00
Public seminar with Sharika Thiranagama, Assistant Professor of Anthropology.
Her research has focused on various aspects of the Sri Lankan civil war. Primarily, she has conducted research with two different ethnic groups, Sri Lankan Tamils and Sri Lankan Muslims. Her research explores changing forms of ethnicisation, the effects of protracted civil war on ideas of home in the midst of profound displacement and the transfomrations in and relationships between the political and the familial in the midst of political repression and militarization. She is currently carrying out a new fieldwork project on Transformations of Public and Private Life in Kerala. It is based on the Palakkad district of Kerala and will examine three generations of transformation among agricultural workers and the rural library movement.
