From October 24-26, 2019, The New School will host the Fifth International Conference on the Legacy of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. Samata Foundation is one of the conference collaborators along with Brandies University, Barnard College, Columbia University, UMass Amherst, The Indian Institute of Dalit Studies and Ambedkar International Mission, USA.
The conference will explore critical issues faced by the Dalit community, with a focus on the intersecting nature of gender, religion, and caste-based discrimination. Since its inception, the Ambedkar Conference has convened various scholars and practitioners, institutions and organizations across the world, creating a space to discuss the politics of equal dignity and equal rights for Dalits. This year, we hope to further this conversation.
