The relationship between caste identity and mental well-being is critical and yet curiously unexplored. Unpacking culturally rooted caste conflict requires addressing the dynamics between victims and victimisers. This unique inter-disciplinary seminar will address some of the following questions: How does caste shape individual minds and determine collective mentalities? Why and how does caste discrimination impact upon the inner lives of both the perpetrators and their victims?
This event is supported by UCL's Grand Challenge of Inter-cultural Interaction, UCL Office for International Affairs, UCL Science, Medicine and Society Network, & Research Councils UK India.
