Anupama Rao Delivers Franke Lecture at Yale

Anupama Rao, Associate Professor of History at Barnard and co-director of CSSD working groups Geographies of Injustice and Reframing Gendered Violence, delivered a talk entitled  “Social Abstraction, Historical Comparison: Thinking Caste, Race, and Gender in the Time Capital” at Yale University. It was part of the Franke Lecture Series.

Anupama’s work explores the relationship of caste and political culture. Her book The Caste Question theorized caste subalternity, with specific focus on the role of anti-caste thought (and its thinkers) in producing alternative genealogies of political subject-formation.
