HAPPY TO READ FROM YOU
My apologies for never replying to your kind and encouraging comment, I read it once and then could never find it again and for some reason have found it today!! So this is rather late but I least I acknowledge your reply!!
Thanks for your note>
I know about your work and I think we might have met once in a conference more than a decade ago.
In any case, i am just settling in Oxford and collecting my notes about the banjara.
One of the most curious bits about it all is that there is almoist no academic research on them. I double checked this with the Indian professor of history Meena Radhakrishna who worked on the issue of their classification as "criminal tribes" by british colonials and she confirmed it. Journalistic pieces and reports by the few social activists who are concerned with the plight of "these untouchable of the untouchables" note that Indian academics stay away from these people because of deep social .disdain.
The way I think to approach the issue of mother and child mortality is via a larger exploration of the posion of these people within the India hierarchical world. Issues of migration and world view or citizenship and human rights. But this is all very much opening ideas.
I really welcome your and any other reader of this exchange who is more familiar with the issues and the setting of this new research.
Thank you for the welcome. Having just joined, I haven't been able to stop reading the various threads in this group. I work with Farzaneh Milani here at the University of Virginia and especially liked seeing her article under discussion. My own dissertation research will take place very soon near Shiraz - exact location still pending - so I am very happy to have found this group.
Perusing is definitely a good choice of word. Following your advice I did joined a few groups. Being somewhat new to the discipline I am not fully aware of my interests and how they will develop within anthropology and so far they are very disparate (but not in a pejorative way).
I removed my comment because it did not help the discussion. The reason that many Europeans criticize Israeli foreign policy is because Israeli foreign policy is a disaster, not because they are anti-semitic. Also, because it is a disaster enacted very publicly on television (unlike, say the Sri Lankan massacres). Speaking personally, I am not anti-semitic because I do not hold any essential views about Israelis or about people who identify themselves as Jewish.
you mentioned in your post that you are familiar with literature on co-ops. I study fair-trade retailing co-ops and have been hard pressed to find (recent) literature on co-operatives (in general) from a social science perspective, or an anthropological one. Any suggestions?
