Dalit Theology in the Twenty-First Century: Discordant Voices, Discerning Pathways

Sathianathan Clarke (Editor) Deenabandhu Manchala (Editor) Philip Vinod Peacock (Editor)
Synopsis Has Dalit Theology reached an impasse since its early burst of creative energy in the late eighties and early nineties? Transcending the boundaries of academic disciplinarily, this volume underscores new directions and concern of contemporary Dalit Theology. The essays challenge the several stereotypical assumptions and re-examine the ways in which Dalit realities are imagined, interpreted, and circulated in different ecclesial communities across India. They advocates new frameworks and methodologies for understanding Dalit Theology and also raise subversive questions arising out of subaltern experiences.

The volume highlights how-despite its proud entry into the post-colonial, politically democratic, twenty-first century-India continues to straddle structural inequalities and functional hierarchies based on its age old caste system. It also looks at various Dalit movements that struggle against insidious forms of caste-, class-, ethnicity, and religion-based violence and violation. Combining Dalit theology with feminism, subaltern studies, postmodernism, and biblical interpretation, this volume will be of considerable interest to students and scholars of sociology, gender studies, religion, and Dalit politics.
