On Wednesday 18th June 2014 Professor Veena Das will deliver this year’s Chrystal Macmillan lecture.
Krieger-Eisenhower Professor at John Hopkins University and a founding member of the Institute of Socio-Economic Research in Development and Democracy, Professor Das is an established figure in Indian anthropology and her research interests also include feminist movements and gender studies, anthropology of violence, social suffering and subjectivity.
For the Chrystal Macmillan Lecture she will be speaking on the topic:
War and Intimate Violence: Reading the Ethnographic Record in the Light of the Mahabharata.
Professor Das has been published extensively and has worked as an editor on a number of publications. Using Resource Lists @ Edinburgh we’ve put together a Professor Veena Das reading list with just a small selection of books and articles authored or edited by Professor Das that University of Edinburgh staff and students can access through the University Library.
