Theme: Inequalities and Differences
Description: Inequalities and differences in the developing world have 
historically. Caste, class, gender, ethnicity etc are reshaped to 
converge with circuits of
global capital within and outside the nation-state. How do social and 
mobilizations produce collective identities? Does the state’s 
intervention mitigate or
reinforce disparities? What effects do solidarities and conflicts among the
underprivileged have on society at large? The Workshop will address 
these and similar
questions from the perspective of various social science disciplines. 
The Workshop is
part of a project on ‘Training in New Social Science Research Methods’ 
being run by the
Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta (CSSSC).

pursue doctoral
