Prof. Anupama Rao Edits Volume on Gender, Caste, and the Imagination of Equality

January 12, 2018

Anupama Rao, Associate Professor of History, has edited a volume entitled Gender, Caste and the Imagination of Equality. Published by Women Unlimited, the volume explores the changed terrain of discussion, and examines how religion, political and economic relations, and debates about sexuality and the politics of representation have reshaped the caste question in contemporary public life. Contributors focus on these fraught questions, which challenge feminist invocations of the intersectionality of gender, caste, and class, to ask how sex and social difference are being transformed at present.
