Piers Locke replied to Anjan Ghosh's discussion Elections in India in the group South Asian Anthropology

"Gerald, Interesting questions but before posing my own, I should clarify that Deleuze and Guattari do not use the notion of 'minority literature' in the sense of literature written by a subjected set of people ! In fact they use the notion…"

Elections in India

As the biggest spectacle of popular participation in democracy, elections bring to the surface a myriad range of activities from caste, ethnic and regional faultlines to means of bridging differences. The recent Lok Sabha elections have once again invoked a national imagining sorely lacking in the earlyier fractured verdicts ! Does this mean that the cracks in the polity have been filled ? Are we all agreed on a convergent path of neoliberal development ? Any thoughts ?AnjanSee More

My interests are shifting from how colonialism shaped the formation of anthropology in the peripheries to governing the directions of anthropology by indirect means.

Thanks Prof. Ghosh. Yes this is worth thinking about - the whole issue of brands and inclusion / exclusion / access. The way technology has been theorized in SCOT and post SCOT critiques. Perhaps I'll blog a piece on brands and how they control access through inclusion and exclusion and share it in this space. As a thought starter on this.
