ABOUT THE BOOK

The anthology Dalit Women's Auto biographies: Convergences and Divergences reformulates and envisages Dalit women's struggle against caste, class and gender- based oppression through some select Dalit women's autobiographies, memoirs and personal narratives. These autobiographies are the auguries of a new era vehemently focusing on women empowerment, Dalit politics, subalternity and Dalit feminism. Dalit women's long struggle to liberate themselves from their triple marginalized status to their leap towards justice, dignity, equality and liberation further provides a dialogic interface between their harrowing past and promising present. Highlighting different perspectives regarding Indian Dalit feminism, this anthology attempts to showcase the whole range of Dalit women's autobiographies in English and few in regional languages as well. The uniqueness of the topic makes this book a strong addendum in the existing Dalit feminist literature. The esteemed contributors of this anthology are Prof. D. Amalraj, Dr Shikha Saxena, Dr Somali Gupta, Dr Gunjan Shushil, Dr Santosh Kumar Sonker, Dr Ashok Verma, Dr Ruchi Raj Thakur, Dr Justin James, Dr Meetu Bhatia Kapur, Dr C. Ramya, Dr Meenu Dudeja, Dr Avinash Kumar, Dr Suruchi Sharma, Dr Kusum Kanger, K. Sunitha Devi, Guni Vats, Anusha A.J., N. Padma priyadharshini, Devanshi
Bhatnagar, Dr Vinod K. Chopra, Dr Avinash Kumar, Dr Tamanna, Dr S. R. Chaitra, Dr B. Manivannan, Dr Aadil Amin Kak, Dr Deeba Sarmad, Dr Suchitra Gupta and Dr S. Chelliah.
