Outcaste Press publishing
- Varsha Ayyar
Outcaste Press is the first international Dalit Feminist press committed to promoting anti-caste thought worldwide and to bringing global attention to Dalit women.
Rooted in the thought of Dr. B.R Ambedkar and the radical feminism of Jyotiba and Savitribai Phule, the Press sheds light on the struggles of India’s marginalized groups.
Our objective is to democratize the reading cultures in India and to bring diversity in women’s writing. We are interested in furthering critical debates around gender, participatory democracy, socio-political and economic inequalities, culture, and difference. Our vision is to become a catalyst of social transformation: to educate, organize, and agitate for a more equitable India. To these ends we are soliciting academic monographs, collections of essays, fiction, non-fiction, and work in translation.
