A conference titled Caste in South Asia and its Diasporas to be held on Monday 4 July at the Institute for Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology, 64 Banbury Road, Oxford, OX2 6PN.

This one-day international conference explores the contemporary manifestations of caste in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh, and their diasporas in the UK. Caste, although a pan-South Asian phenomenon, manifests itself in divergent ways in these countries. In India and Nepal, one can often discern the direct manifestation of caste in everyday social relations, while in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, it is more subtle and hidden. Nevertheless, caste is an important reality that influences politics, economy and social life in all these countries. Even among the South Asian communities living in the UK, caste is an important determinant in interpersonal and intercommunity relations.

This conference aims to explore the public and hidden transcripts of caste relations through the lens of religion, economy, gender, politics, and ethnicity in South Asian countries and South Asian communities in the UK. The primary focus of the conference is to unmask and critically engage with the contemporary forms of caste-based discrimination, prejudice and marginalisation.

The speakers include: David Mosse (SOAS), Tariq Rahman (BNU), Annapurna Waughray (MMU), Meena Dhanda (UW), Shapan Adnan (Dhaka), Thanges Paramsothy (UEL), Barbara Harriss-White (Oxford), Uma Pradhan (Oxford), Matthew McCartney (Oxford), Muhammad Jan (Oxford), Clarinda Still (Oxford), George Kunnath (Oxford), Indrajit Roy (Oxford), Nicholas Martin (Zurich), Amarjit Singh (Anti-caste Activist, UK), Sufyan Abid (Chester), Lekh Pal (ACDA, UK)

The keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor David Mosse (SOAS).
