2 New Publications by Arpita Chakraborty

PhD Candidate Arpita Chakraborty, Ireland India Institute scholar, has two news publications:

The first is a Review in Religion & Gender. Arpita Chakraborty reviews Charu Gupta, The Gender of Caste: Representing Dalits in Print (Global South Asia series). Here is an excerpt from the Review:

‘Charu Gupta has made her contribution in the field of historical research at the intersection of gender and caste in India widely acclaimed. She continues where she had left off her previous work on the Hindi popular print media and in this latest work focuses on the intersection of caste and gender in colonial North India through visual print culture and archival material…’

The PdF of the review is available here.



The second publication is a Chapter in We’ve Come a Long Way, Reproductive Rights of Migrants and Ethnic Minorities in Ireland

On May 25th Ireland voted for the legalisation of abortion by a landslide. This was the result of years of fighting, organising and protesting from grassroots groups and activists. This book took form in the lead-up to the referendum, but despite the victory, the wider battle for reproductive justice continues. This book includes testimonials, interviews and research written by migrant women and ethnic minorities who were an integral part of the referendum campaign. From the Traveller community in Ireland to migrant women from Brazil, our contributors share their experiences on matters like abortion access, maternity services, sexism and discrimination. 

Arpita Chakraborty wrote a Chapter on ‘Reproductives Rights in India’. Link to the book can be found here.
