Anupama Rao | Labor, Masculinity, and the Itineraries of Dalit Modernity

April 11, 2016, 8:30 am - 10:00 am

This talk is based on a collaborative project to translate and introduce the autobiography of Dalit Communist, R. B Moré (1902-1972). The presentation will use Moré’s writing as a point of departure for considering questions of subaltern inhabitation, the heterogeneous history of Marxism in Bombay, and issues of caste and masculinity. A specific focus is the relationship between colonial capital, and the de-materialization of caste under conditions of colonial urbanity. Another is the question of how we might write connected histories of space and thought.
