Practicing Caste makes a fundamental break from the tradition of caste studies, and highlights the limits of the historical, sociological, political, and moral categories through which it has usually been discussed. Engaging with the resources that phenomenology, structuralism, and post structuralism offer to our thinking of the body, Jaaware illuminates the ethical relations surrounding caste, especially around its prescriptions concerning touch. The resulting insights offer new ways of thinking about sociality that are pertinent not only to India, but also to other cultures, and make thinking of "the common" possible across cultures.
