The Association Jeunes Etudes Indiennes (AJEI) is pleased to invite you to its 2022 webinar series India Matters.

On January 12thJulien Levesque will inaugurate this year’s webinar series with the presentation « Understanding Caste among Muslims: Classic Debates and New Scholarly Developments »

From colonial census administrators to social scientists, scholars have debated whether Muslims in the subcontinent can be said to have castes. In recent decades, the discussion also entered the political arena over the issue of reservations in India. This presentation will first sum up the key historical moments of the scholarly debates on Muslim caste since colonial times. The speaker will then turn to more contemporary scholarship to highlight its contribution and the avenues it opens for further research.

The sessions will take place on Zoom 12th January, 1:00 pm CET/ 5:30 pm IST. The presentation will be followed by a QnA.
