The Annihilation of Caste Reading Group meets monthly during the academic year.
We pick a text and a mentor for each week. We discuss the text amongst ourselves in the first half hour and then, barring technical difficulties, Skype with a mentor/activist from India who will offer her/his perspective on the same theme. Light refreshments are served.
