Inter (Caste) Love Stories: Experiential Eye (I) in Fandry and Sairat

To read anti-caste context in cinema one needs to have an experiential eye. The ones at the receiving end of caste-based discrimination and thereof inflicted humiliation by the orthodox social codes find resistance as the only way to achieve “liberty, equality and freedom.” In this relation, the paper focuses upon two Marathi films Fandry (2013) and Sairat (2016) directed by Nagaraj Manjule. The paper seeks to present the experiential perspective about Dalit visuality which has started to gain a wider recognition in interdisciplinary studies from verbal to the visual literature.

Understanding Gail Omvedt’s Anti-caste and Feminist Research Methodology

Gail Omvedt has published more than 50 articles in EPW. This includes sharp book reviews, innovative research work and critical responses to articles published in the journal. After her death, EPW published reflective articles to understand her contributions. To take this a step further, and to commemorate her legacy, we felt that it could be useful to take a behind-the-scenes look at her research process, how her work is taught within a classroom setting and critical reflections about her scholarship.
