UW-Madison, Annual Conference on South Asia 2020, CFP: Panel on Policing in South Asia

Charlotte Giles's picture


My name is Charlotte Giles and I am a PhD candidate at UT Austin. My grad fellow, Daniel Dillon, and I, are looking to put together a panel addressing policing in South Asia. My focus will be on the effect of police targeting of Muslims in Lucknow, India, particularly those in the textile and craft sectors. Daniel will be looking at Tamil drivers living as disposable men under the constant surveillance and violence of the (Sinhalese) Sri Lankan state. 

Please get in touch if these or other policing-related issues/regions are things that you would be interested in presenting on with us. We are looking for 1-2 more papers to join in the discussion.
