Remembering Ambedkar: It has been sixty four years since Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar’s demise. Considering our current socio-political society, where discrimination against marginalized groups is rampant, it becomes even more important to understand and grasp Ambedkar’s ideas of equality and justice: the two values through which Ambedkar viewed democracy. Taking that into consideration, Lamakaan invites everybody to a zoom conversation with three experts who will deliver their respective discourses on Ambedkar and the current climate in the country. The speakers are as follows: 1. Aishwary Kumar: Dr. Aishwary Kumar is a professor at University of California and an intellectual historian of the Global South. His work engages a wide spectrum of issues in moral and political philosophy, history of political thought and inequality, political freedom and justice, and global lineages of self-determination, citizenship, and rights.

Professor Kumar will be speaking on the notion of segregation/quarantine and how Ambedkar employs them in his arguments on democratic crises.

  1. Leonard Dickens: Dr. Leonard Dickens is a professor at the Center for Comparative Literature at the University of Hyderabad. His research has focused heavily on Anti Caste thought and debate. He has published on anti-caste intellectual thought, print culture, and also on contemporary Tamil films in internationally renowned journals. Professor Dickens will be discussing three critical moments in Ambedkar’s journey.
  2. Jyothsna Siddharth: Jyotsna Siddharth is an actor, anti-caste activist and writer based in Delhi. She is a founder of Project Anti-Caste, Love and Co-founder of Sive. She has conducted workshops with colleges in Delhi University on Questions of Social Identities in Romantic Relationships. She has a Masters in Development and Social Anthropology and a recipient of Chevening Scholarship (2014).

Ms. Siddharth will be speaking on Ambedkar’s views on inter-caste marriages.

The zoom conversation will take place on the 14th of April from 5 pm to 7:30 pm.

Author Devika is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Self-publishing & Zine Making

Self-publishing & Zine Making
Workshop
2.0 hrs

March 03, 2020 5:00 pm Tuesday

Wait, what is a zine? Zines are a DIY form of self-publishing that we hope to explore further with you this Tuesday!

Who are we? Devashree Somani and Riya Behl are recent graduates of Ashoka University, currently engaging in the development sector. We will be speaking Hindi and English during this workshop.

What will we be doing? As young people, who are on the journey of finding our voices in a country struggling to uphold the values of a democracy, we would like to democratize the process of making art with you. The focus of this workshop will be ‘Hope in struggle’. We will go over the history and technique of making zines following which, participants will start working on individual zines.

At the end of the workshop, we will make photocopies for each other to swap – in original zine-style that removed money from the exchange of ideas – and hopefully, keep sharing through this form.

Participants are required to: – Think of a concept or narrative for the Zine – Carry A3/A4 paper(s) that will be your canvas. We encourage re-using paper, so it could be any old paper with one side blank. Please remember to bring photographs, news clippings, anything you might want in your Zine. – Carry any other stationery like scissors, glue, stickers etc., that you wish to use. – If you have made zines before or have them at home, bring them along too. It will confirm for first-timers that what you can include in a zine is only limited by your imagination! – Carry yourselves, and on time!

See you soon!
