RLG476H1: Caste and its "Other"


This course focuses on works of South Asian fiction and non-fiction that deal with caste in Indian society. By looking at a range of texts from Classical Sanskrit literature in translation to contemporary radical Dalit perspective writings, we aim to arrive at an understanding of why, despite social and economic mobility, caste remains the indelible marker of modern Indian identity even today.
