CSAS Lecture Series | The “Public” of Public Humanities: A Conversation about the University and Its Outside
Prof. Rao will offer a reflection on the question of intellectual labor, its relationship to the problem of mass intellectuality (from the vantage point as a scholar of Dalit pasts and presents), and the University, especially Columbia University where she is currently conducting archival research for a project called “Ambedkar in America,” which is linked with the Ambedkar Initiative: https://icls.columbia.edu/initiatives/ambedkar-initiative/
We then draw on ideas of historical comparison, translation, and (global) convergence as a useful rubric to guide an open discussion about CSSAAME journal as a particular artefact of collaborative scholarly labor.
