Description:

Minds of Caste - An Inter-Disciplinary Seminar on How Caste Identities Shape the Mind

The relationship between caste identity and mental well-being is critical and yet curiously unexplored. Unpacking culturally rooted caste conflict requires addressing the dynamics between victims and victimisers. This unique inter-disciplinary seminar will address some of the following questions: How does caste shape individual minds and determine collective mentalities? Why and how does caste discrimination impact upon the inner lives of both the perpetrators and their victims?
