The Dalit Movement in India traces new 'practices' and discourses among Dalit activists since the 1990s and shows how these practices both shaped and changed social relations. It is an anthropological attempt to reach behind the surface of the contemporary Dalit movement. Some of the topics discussed are the kind of discourses found among Dalit activists, the organizational structure of the movement, and the local practices among activists.

This study also relates the method of anthropological fieldwork to theories about social movements. It offers a historical context as a prerequisite to understanding processes in the contemporary Dalit movement. The Dalit Movement in India focuses on the heterogeneity and the geographical spread of the movement. The fieldwork moves from a small locality of Dalits in Lucknow to interaction with Dalit activists in Maharashtra to the life of Punjabi Dalit migrants in Birmingham.

Review:

Hardtmann's writing is beautifully clear, her argumentation is refreshingly lucid, and the insights generated from her ethnography are original and important. As well as making a significant and provocative contribution to the academic debate on Dalits, social movements, caste politics, and identity, the book will no doubt appeal to a wider audience of students, activists, journalists, and interested non-specialists. * Clarinda Still, University of Oxford * Based on research conducted in as varied loactions as Lucknow, Durban, and Wolverhampton, Eva-Maria Hardtmann's book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the Dalit movement within and beyond India's borders...

Book Description Oxford University Press, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. This anthropological study examines the nature and context of Dalit discourses, organizational structure, and the local practices of activists. The focus is on the heterogeneity, internal tensions, and transnational connections of the movement. The author argues that contradictions within the movement contribute to its growth and stronger cultural identity. She presents three separate but influential Dalit discourses?Dalit Buddhism, Dalit Christian theology, and the Dalit political perspective. She also addresses issues of Dalit feminism and gender relations in the movement. The essays examine the role played by traditional key figures like Ambedkar and Gandhi in developing the movement. They also discuss contemporary figures like Kanshi Ram, Mayawati, and Phoolan Devi and their contributions to the movement. Printed Pages: 280. Seller Inventory # 19428
