Ethnographic Study: Women in Irula Tribe of S. India
7:00 PM
Montana State University - Bozeman
Join us for a wonderful presentation by Sarah Webb who will present stories and images of the women living in South India's Irula tribe. Sarah spent the past year living in rural Tamil Nadu, teaching English and Social Studies to first-generation literacy students. During her stay in India, she interviewed four women about their lives as members of the Irula Tribe, exploring issues of inter-caste marriage, widow rituals and the invisibility of domestic violence and alcoholism. Her presentation will focus on the stories of each woman, as well as the intricacies of Irula rituals.
