Race and Caste Poster

Race and Caste

The Other Universals Consortium and the Center for Race, Gender and Class (University of Johannesburg) are organizing a colloquium on Race and Caste; Hierarchy and Universality at the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study on Feb 21-23, 2023.

The colloquium emerges out of a longer set of explorations around the connections and divergences between race and caste, and antiracist and anticaste movements specifically in Africa, South Asia and the Caribbean. The question of overlaps, resonances, disjunctions and creative possibilities that emerge when radical anticolonial, feminist, and anticaste struggles are put into conversation is at the heart of this gathering of scholars and artists.

The CHR fellowship programme will continue in 2022 through online platforms and, where permitted, limited live events hosted in compliance with COVID-19 protocols. Please follow our events page for updates about events.
