Event Details

The Ireland India Institute is inviting you to a seminar on ‘Marginalisation Across Cultures:  Dalit Women in India and Traveller Women in Ireland’, which is an ambitious effort to bring together Dalit activists from India and Traveller activists from Ireland in conversation with each other. In a first of its kind event, four activist-scholars will share their views of social and political marginalization faced by these communities, and how these experiences can be moved towards solidarities. The objective of this seminar is to bring together activists and scholars from both countries working on the issues faced by these communities for the first time, hoping to bridge a new connection.

This event will see Maari Zwick Maitreyi (Equality Labs) and Prof. Charu Gupta (University of Delhi) debate Catherine Joyce (Traveller Rights Activist) and Eileen Flynn, National Traveller Women’s Forum on the issues on Dalit (India) and Traveller (Ireland) women.
