Intersectional Hindu Studies: Feminist and Critical Race Approaches to Research and Teaching Seminar

Statement of Purpose: 

This seminar centers the work of racialized researchers and teachers of Hinduism who use critical race theory (CRT) and intersectional feminist theory in our own work, and who are committed to challenging systemic inequality in academic spaces. We have three objectives:

  1. To develop an intersectional critique of the formation and institutionalization of Hindu Studies as a field

  2. To challenge the prevailing narratives about Hindus and Hindu Studies in the academy and in the global public sphere

  3. To create a space for racialized scholars in Hindu Studies (and connected fields) to examine and share our own experiences in academia

Call for Papers:

Call for Papers:
There will not be an open call for papers this year; rather, we will be asking invited participants to produce presentations related to our exploration of the topics:
1). Exploring Caste Supremacy and the meaning and practices involved in Anti-Caste Activism and Scholarship.
2). White Supremacy and how it’s influenced the study of Hinduism
3). Hindutva’s impact on the scholarship and scholars of Hindu studies.
