Dalit Resource Centre to organise workshop
Allahabad, Jan 18: Dalit Resource Centre (DRC), a unit of Manav Vikas Sangrahalaya at GB Pant Social Science Institute, Allahabad is organising a workshop on dalit women writers.
The workshop would be around the theme Dalit Women and their Liberation in the context of their Literary Expressions on January 25 and 26.
The objective of the workshop is to understand the literary expressions of dalit women writers related to their physical atrocities, social injustice and psychological dishonour and to provide a platform to create a network of dalit women writers and activists.
It will encourage the dissemination of liberating and emancipatory ideas among dalit women of North India, where society is still strongly divided on caste and gender lines and dalits still face oppression and humiliation.
Dalit and non-dalits women writers, scholars and intellectuals from all over country will be attending the conference.
