Center for South Asian Studies | University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa

Internet Resources

The UHM Center for South Asian Studies has accordingly developed this small project to introduce junior and non-specialist members of the UH and broader research community to the notion of ‘caste’ as a critical and contested concept. We hope these preliminary resources will prove useful to those who want to take caste into the classroom.
