14 April Remembering Ambedkar
Tue Apr 14, 5:00 PM
Lamakaan Prog Council
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.

2. 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.
3. 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.
