Two-day Conference on Counting Caste: Breaking the Caste Census Deadlock

The conference hopes to discuss how a caste census in India could take forward conversations on representation, access to resources, wealth distribution, and participation of marginalised caste groups in governance and electoral politics. Through six panels with notable names in academia, politics, activism, and performance, the conference aims to raise questions about how the “majority” and “minority” have been constructed in Indian politics, academic writing, and popular culture. It is being organised at the University of Oxford by the South Asia Alternative Forum (St Antony’s College), with the support of the department of Oxford School of Global and Area Studies (St Antony’s College), the South Asia Research Cluster (Wolfson College) and the South Asian Society.
