DIVERSITY AND PLURALITY IN SOUTH ASIA

 

The Diversity and Plurality in South Asia series, wide in scope, brings together publications in anthropology and sociology, alongside politics and international relations, exploring themes of both contemporary and historical relevance. This diverse line in the social sciences and humanities investigates the plurality of social groups, identities and ideologies, including within its remit not only interrogations of issues surrounding gender, caste, religion and region, but also political variations, and a variety of cultural ideas and expressions within South Asia.

  1. Caste, Entrepreneurship and the Illusions of Tradition
     
    Branding the Potters of Kolkata
    Geir Heierstad

    This ethnographic study is an empirical exploration of caste through the story of Indian potters who have transformed caste into a marketable brand in the business of selling sculptures. To these contemporary potters, caste is in their blood, caste is about being a creative and independent artist, and caste is about business, as they engage in a competitive market to sell their artworks.

  7. The Anti-Politics Machine in India
     
    State, Decentralization and Participatory Watershed Development
    Vasudha Chhotray

    This book assesses the validity of ‘anti-politics’ critiques of development, first popularised by James Ferguson, in the peculiar context of India. It examines the extent to which it is possible to keep politics out of a highly technocratic state watershed development programme that also seeks to be participatory.
