Inspirational Speaker event

Caste consciousness: the necessity if internal critique

The next Inspirational Speaker event, hosted by SECL, takes place on Wednesday 6th March 4pm – 5.30pm, Darwin LT1.

Prof. Meena Dhanda, Professor of Philosophy and Cultural Politics at the University of Wolverhampton. In her talk, Prof. Dhanda shares the problems encountered in morally and politically confronting caste consciousness. Fear of ‘emergent vulnerabilities’ closes discussion, but attention to internal critiques of inherited ways of life opens the path for truly decolonised ways of thinking.

Please do come along to this and especially encourage students to do so (the series is intended to inspire a student audience). Many do not expect that we would need to confront issues of caste in the UK, but Meena’s research on this topic is very enlightening.

 This event is free and open to staff and students.
