Combating Caste on U.S. College Campuses
In this student-faculty collaborated talk, Shailaja Paik (University of Cincinnati) and Prem Pariyar (California State University, East Bay) join Shefali Chandra (Washington University) and members of the student group Ekta and the Asian Multicultural Council to discuss how caste functions in college campuses within the South Asian diaspora, brainstorm tools to combat it, and connect caste with other transnational hierarchical systems. Join Ekta and AMC to kick off Dalit History Month this April!
