Negotiating Gender and Caste in Higher Education: a Grand Rounds discussion
12 June 2013
An event on 27 June aims to explore the roles of gender and caste in university-based relationships.
Does our gender or caste identity – as teachers or students – matter? How are our experiences of teaching and learning shaped, enhanced and challenged by the interplay of our own characteristics such as gender or caste and by those of our teachers? And how are these influenced by the wider culture of an academic department or discipline, the culture of the university as a forum for learning and teaching, and the broader aspects of the host culture?
Gender is one of the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010. The House of Lords recently voted in favour of a clause to make 'caste' a protected characteristic too, making discrimination on the grounds of caste illegal. What are the implications for our experience at university?
This first Cultural Consultation Service (CCS) Grand Round brings together two distinguished visitors from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, India, and a panel of speakers. Our visitors will each share a case on gender and on caste followed by responses from the panel; audience members are also invited to join the discussion.
Contributions will come from Professor Shubhada Maitra, Centre for Health Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, India and Professor Avatthi Ramaiah, Centre for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, India.
The event's welcome and introduction will be made from Professor Nick Tyler, UCL Pro-Provost East and South Asia, Chadwick Chair of Civil Engineering, Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering. A response will be made by Professor David Napier, UCL Anthropology and Director of the UCL Science Medicine and Society Network.
The event will run from 5.30-7.30pm on Thursday 27 June 2013 and will be followed by a drinks reception. The venue is G06 Sir Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre, Roberts Building, University College London, Torrington Place, London, WC1E 7JE.
The event is free to attend but registration is essential.
