Workshops on ‘Governing the Crisis: Covid at the Margins in India’ and ‘Legal and Ethical Steps for Startup’


JK Lakshmipat University, Jaipur hosted researchers from across disciplinary backgrounds to undertake a workshop on ‘Governing the Crisis: Covid at the Margins in India’ from April 15-16, 2022 in hybrid mode. This workshop investigated two interrelated concerns. It examined the governance aspect by firmly positioning the crisis narrative at the heart of marginality, thereby explaining the effects of Covid on communities that continue to remain at the nation’s margins. It also presented varied voices and granular narratives of sufferings that structured the lives of the poorest and dispossessed in the country during a crisis. The sessions addressed the grief and trauma sent awash due to the pandemic humanely and analysed structural violence that uses those on the margins as fodder. Afreen Faridi, Assistant Professor at CCCT, organised the workshop alongside Post-Doctoral Researcher Rahul Ranjan from Oslo Metropolitan University. The session was organised with support from AsiaNet at University of Oslo (UiO). Afreen presented his work locating ‘Nation-State machinations & pastoralism within the Gujjar and Bakkarwal Tribe of J&K’. JKLU welcomed scholars from across spatial, social and pedagogical locales including Ritwika Patgiri (SAU, New Delhi), Aashish Xaxa (IIT, Gandhinagar), Manjesh Rana (Delhi Legislative Assembly Fellow), Sushmita (Journalist), Rashmi Kumari (Rutgers University), Jay Prakash (Syracuse University), Nishant Sirohi (University of Oslo), Anwesha Dutta (CMS Norway), Rituparna Patgiri (IP College for Women, New Delhi) and Aparna Agarwal (University of Oxford).
