Dalits and the Making of Modern India

Saint Mary’s Dept. of Religious Studies, in collaboration with Dal History, and Dal + SMU International Development Studies departments, is pleased to invite you to an evening with Dr. Chinnaiah Jangam (Carleton University, History) on March 1, 2018 at the Halifax Central Library BMO room, 630 - 8pm. Dr. Jangam is a leading expert in modern Indian studies and Dalit historiography in particular. He will be giving a talk concerning his new book, Dalits and the Making of Modern India (Delhi: OUP, 2017) which promises to be a real shake-up to conventional and caste-biased accounts of the contributions of Dalits to Indian Independence and beyond.
